How did we find out the truth?: We did a simple reverse image search on the viral image which led us to a Facebook post from 2015.
The photo was posted by a user named Shubham Shekhar on 12 December 2015.
The photo's caption stated that this picture is from Patna and shows a rickshaw puller who died due to a heart attack.
Taking a cue from the post, we conducted a keyword search to look for news reports from 2015 but were unable to find any.
Conclusion: While we could not independently verify the location and the context of the image, the fact that the image has been there on the internet since 2015 shows that it is not related to the current cold wave experienced by the Northern part of India.
