A video of a woman gagged, tied and hacked to death with an axe has been widely shared on social media with the claim that it’s from India. Alt News is not providing any links to the video due to its graphic nature.

A Twitter user shared the viral video and wrote, “Humanity is dead. This is barbaric, sad, and shocking. Is he an executioner? I request nation’s police officers punish him in a similar way. (इंसानियत मर चुकी है, हैवानियत है बहुत दु:खद आश्चर्य है, ये जल्लाद हैं क्या ? मै देश के समस्त पुलिस प्रशासन से अनुरोध करता हूँ की इसको ऐसे ही सजा दी जाये !!)” He tagged Uttar Pradesh and Delhi police in his tweet. 

Similarly, several Facebook users shared the video with Hindi text, “Humanity is dead. A woman subjected to this kind of cruelty. (इंसानियत मर चुकी है एक अबला औरत पर इस तरह का घोर #जुल्म.)”

Fact-check

Alt News broke the video into multiple keyframes using InVid and after several reverse-image search attempts, we were led to the website Gore Brazil.

While the website did not provide any details about the video, we took the hint that it could be from Brazil.

Alt News performed a keyword search in Portuguese—‘mulher morta com machado’—which translates to ‘woman killed with axe’. We performed this search on Facebook as Google did not throw up results matching the description of the video.

The first result on Facebook leads to a post on the page ‘Feminicídio – Parem de nos matar’ which publishes cases of femicide in Brazil. The post said that Thalia Torres de Souza (23) was hacked to death with an axe in Granja Portugal, Fortaleza.

A subsequent keyword using the woman’s name led us to several other Facebook posts in Portuguese. ‘Aracati Polícia 24hs’ uploaded a picture of the woman where she can be seen in the same clothes as the viral video. This post is from August 30.

Thus a gruesome video from Brazil is circulating with the false claim that a woman was hacked to death in India. Alt News has debunked several such videos from Brazil in the past.
