Images From Adult Comedy Falsely Linked To Yogi Adityanath

BOOM found that the screengrabs are from a web drama that is available on YouTube since 2017.

Screengrabs from an adult comedy film on YouTube have surfaced with claims that they show Uttar Pradesh's chief minister Yogi Adityanath molesting a woman.

Three screengrabs from the skit, which revolves around a fraudster hermit and how he sexually harasses his female followers in the name of treating them, are viral, along with an image of Yogi Adityanath. One such post takes a dig at the UP CM's character based on the screengrabs. The post reads, "He wears saffron clothes and chants Ram. But when he sees a woman he is titillated." (Original text in Bangla: গায়ে গেরুয়া পোষাক , মুখে রাম আর নারী, দেখলেই অন্তরে জাগে, কাম ছিঃ ছিঃ। )
