A video of protesters setting themselves on fire while burning an effigy has gone viral on social media suggesting the protesters were burning effigy of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

While the video is authentic, its context is factually incorrect. Indian protesters did burn the effigy but this was an old video.

The incident happened on 14 December, 2015 in Shimla, India and the protesters belonged to the Congress party.

Here is the original video on Himachal Watcher's YouTube channel:
