CCTV footage of a few boys misbehaving with a girl is viral on social media. In the viral video, three boys can be seen harassing a girl at a bus stand. After a few seconds, a few girls come near the boys and sprays something on the boys' eyes, due to which they fall to the ground. It is being claimed that the viral video is of Muslim boys who tried to harass Hindu girls.
While sharing this video a Twitter user wrote a caption in Hindi that reads, ये जिहादी गुन्डे इन लड़कियो को द्देड़ २हे थे ,इन लड़कियो ने तीनों की ऑखें फोड़ दी अव यह तीनों जिहादी जमीन पर लोट रहे है। हिन्दुओ अपनी लड़की को ऐसी शिक्षा दो जो उनकी तरफ ऑख उठाये वह उसकी ऑख निकाल ले। पर्स में सिर्फ जरुरत के सामान ही नहीं बल्की तेजाब का स्प्रे भी रखना चाहिए."
[English Translation: These jihadi goons were fighting these girls, these girls broke the eyes of all three, and these three jihadis are rolling on the ground. Hindus, give such an education to your girl who will lift her eyes and take out her eyes. Not only essential items but also acid spray should be kept in the purse.]
Muslim boys were molesting Hindu girls.
The Logical Indian Fact Check team verified the claim and found it to be false.

During this video making, we have taken real incidents and picturized to educate the public. Characters in this video are for entertainment and education purposes only.
