Fact Check: Truth behind viral video of ghost swinging on fitness equipment at park

A video from a park in Jhansi, Uttar Pradesh which is going viral on social media has baffled the netizens. It shows gym equipment swinging on its own with police officials standing beside it and recording the ghostly activity.

Ever since the video made it to social media platforms, all sorts of claims were made by those sharing it. Unable to find any logical explanation behind the automatic movement of the shoulder press machine, the netizens referred to it as a “fitness freak ghost”.

However, as per a WhatsApp forward claim, the incident happened in the Japanese Park located in Rohini, New Delhi.

Check out the video:

Fact Check:

As the video garnered more and more views and people jumped to conclusions, the authorities swung into action to solve the mystery. After conducting a thorough investigation, the Jhansi Police took to Twitter to clarify that it was not a paranormal activity but a prank.

They revealed that someone had put excessive grease on the equipment, which made it swing on its own for a few seconds.

The swing was over greased and so it kept moving on its own. Some miscreants made a video of it and then put it all over social media. Currently, we are looking for the culprit and would also like to clarify that there is no ghost. It’s all a rumour,” a tweet by the Jhansi Police read.

Further, Additional Superintendent of Police Rahul Srivastav also confirmed via micro-blogging website that the unnatural movement of gym equipment was nothing more than mischief and that the wrongdoer will soon be put behind the bars.

Final Verdict:

So the claim of fitness freak ghost was a rumour and totally false. It was a prank played by some person.
