How did we find out?: Using InVID, a video verification tool, we divided the viral video into multiple keyframes and ran a reverse image search.
This led us to a news report by an Indonesian news organisation, TribunNews, published on 13 February 2020.
A translated version of the article mentioned that the incident took place at Muhammadiya Need Middle School in Purworejo, Indonesia (SMP Muhammadiya Butuh Purworejo), where a girl studying in the eighth standard was bullied and hit by three male classmates.
In another article, TribunNews mentioned that the three perpetrators had been questioned and arrested by the police.
Conclusion: An old video from Indonesia is being shared with a false communal claim, which says that boys from the Hindu community assaulted their Muslim classmate in India.
