A video has been shared on Twitter with a Hindi caption that says, ”This is the condition of our polling booth. It is being claimed that this video shows voting fraud in Bihar elections.” The video depicts an election polling booth room where women are standing in a queue to cast their votes. When they approach the EVM machine, a man enters the polling station. 

This video is also shared on Facebook

Old video From Haryana 

Alt News performed a reverse image search with the help of InVID and found the same video posted by a Twitter user on May 12, 2019.

In the same thread, he attached a tweet of the district election office of Faridabad which said that the man was taken under arrest. 

NDTV published an article on May 13, 2019, according to which this incident happened during the 2019 Haryana Lok Sabha Election. The Faridabad election office said the polling agent was trying to influence “at least three lady voters” and that senior election officials visited the booth. The man was subsequently arrested. 

Therefore, an old video of polling in Haryana during 2019 Lok Sabha elections is falsely viral as voter fraud in the recently-concluded Bihar elelctions.
