A 30-second viral clip shows a person in a burqa allegedly drugging a child in public and placing the boy inside a rickshaw with the help of a rickshaw driver (wearing a red shirt). The clip is being shared with the caption, “Protect your child from such people,” to target minorities in India. Alt News ran a reverse search and traced the video to Egypt. A Cairo-based journalist revealed that the video has been staged and was definitely shot in Egypt. Four people were arrested by the authorities for creating the staged video.
