Mumbaikars were left shocked on Monday after a video started circulating on WhatsApp and on the internet showing the murder of a girl by a man inside a mall, which was rumoured to be located in Andheri, a western suburb.
The gruesome video shows the man entering the shopping mall with a knife and repeatedly stabbing the girl. Several Mumbaikars expressed their horror about the incident at the purported city mall.
However, it later emerged that the video was actually taken from the CCTV footage of a mall in Sri Lanka. Mumbai Police officials confirmed that the incident did not take place at any mall in Andheri and it had actually happened in Sri Lanka, according to Scroll.in.
The incident is said to have taken place at a mall in Colombo last week.
