BOOM found that the video is from an anti-CAA rally held in Mannarkad, Kerala in January 2020.

An old video from an anti-CAA (Citizen Amendment Act) rally held in Kerala is viral with false captions claiming that the march was organised in the backdrop of the recent communal violence in Tripura.

BOOM found that the viral video is from Kerala and was recorded during the anti-CAA protests being held in 2020.

BOOM watched the video closely. Towards the end of it we can hear the slogans of azadi being raised in the rally. The azadi slogans were quite common during the anti-CAA protests held in several parts of the country in 2019-2020. The language being spoken in the video is Malayalam.

Taking cue, we did a keyword search on Facebook with the words 'massive anti-CAA rally Kerala'.

We found a Facebook post from January 8, 2020 which had a longer version of the same video. The caption with the video reads 'Massive anti-NRC, anti-CAA rally in Kerala (Mannarkad)..'.

Taking cue from a hoarding with Choice written over it, BOOM tried to geolocate the place where the video has been recorded. We found a Choice Wedding Castle in Mannarkad and compared its location with the building seen in the viral video.
