After multiple levels of checks and verification, we found that the video aired by News18 which subsequently went viral on social media is not from Pakistan but from Indore in Madhya Pradesh.
A TweetDeck search directed us to a tweet by Shahnawaz Ansari who had uploaded the video with a claim that the video is from Indore and the person who can be seen jumping is Bhura Bhai.
We reached out to Shahnawaz who told us that this video is from Sikandrabad Colony in Sadar Bazar area of Indore. He also told us that the person ‘Bhura Bhai’ is a trained swimmer.
Next, we came across a Facebook post by one Zaid Pathan from 22 August which also mentioned that the person in the video is Bhura Bhai who is an accomplished swimmer, and that the video is from Indore.
Ansari also helped us access a video of Zafar Ahmed Khan alias Bhura Bhai in which he mentioned that he is a resident of Sadar Bazar area in Indore.
