A video showing police personnel rounding up an individual, who is seen kneeling down with their hands in the air at a metro station, is being shared on social media with a claim that it shows a terrorist being arrested in Haryana's Faridabad.

The claim states that it happened at a metro station.

However, we found that the video shows a mock drill performed by the paramilitary force, Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel at the NHPC metro station in Faridabad.

Speaking to The Quint, Faridabad Police Public Relations Officer (PRO) Sube Singh said that the drill was conducted on Friday, 24 June by CISF personnel at the metro station.

THE CLAIM

The video is shared along with the claim in Hindi that reads, "फरीदाबाद में एक आतंकी गिरफ्तार. फरीदाबाद मेट्रो स्टेशन."

(Translation: A terrorist was arrested at the Faridabad metro station.)

In the video, a woman can be heard saying, "Since the past few days, there have been announcements that there were terrorist movements in Faridabad. Today, the whole police force is deployed."
