A photo of a man roughing up a cop has gone viral with a claim that the image is from Jodhpur and the suspect hails from the minority community. A caption refers to the population of Muslims in India and attempts to arouse fear with the probability of an increase in their numbers. Alt News found the policeman is a head constable who was part of Jodhpur municipal corporation’s anti-encroachment campaign. While removing hawkers obstructing traffic, he was roughed up by a hawker who refused to move. There is no communal angle to the story.
