Old Photos Passed Off As TMC Workers Thrashing CRPF Jawans In Kolkata

The images from Kanpur and Guwahati date back to 2017 and 2011 respectively

Claim

TMC members attacking CRPF personnel in Kolkata. (Hindi: कलकत्ता में CRPF के जवानों पे आक्रमण करते हुए बगदीदी TMC वाले)

Fact

The three images have nothing to do with West Bengal or the Trinamool Congress party. The images are old and unrelated to the claim. While two of the images are from an incident in Kanpur, the third image is from Gauhati. The first two images from Kanpur are when enraged protesters had attacked cops in 2017 after a patient was allegedly raped in a hospital. The third image is from Guwahati when hill settlers rose in a protest against eviction in 2011. You can access the archived version of the post here.
