A video of birds flocking together in the sky, while the road seen in the video is seen to be empty, is being shared widely on social media with the claim that the incident took place on Chandigarh’s Kalka Road during the existing nationwide lockdown. But, ‘FACTLY’ has found the claim to be false. As per 13 February 2020 article of ‘Times of India’, the video shows birds flocking together at a riverfront in Ahmedabad (Gujarat). So, the video is not from Chandigarh (Punjab) and is of an incident prior to the announcement of nationwide lockdown which came into effect from 25 March 2020.
