2018 Video Of DMK Leader Assaulting Woman Revived With Fake Claim

BOOM found that the woman being assaulted in the 2018 video is the owner of a beauty parlour and not a lady doctor as claimed in viral posts.

Claim

Tamil Nadu DMK leader Selva Kumar kicked an on-duty lady doctor. (Hindi: तमिलनाडु द्रमुक पार्टी के नेता सेल्वा कुमार ने ड्यूटी पर तैनात लेडी डॉक्टर को लात मारी।)

Fact

BOOM did a keyword search and found that the viral clip is from 2018, and the woman being assaulted is not a lady doctor. News reports have identified the assaulter as S Selvakumar, a local DMK leader who was expelled from the party, and later arrested. The incident took place at a beauty parlour at Perambalur Old Bus Stand, Tamil Nadu in May 2018. BOOM had debunked the claim when it was viral with the same claim earlier.
