I don’t know that is a good question.

Not really an expert on this, but gravitational lensing maybe?

i don’t think so, if it was, then the whole galaxy would be lensed. this corner is a structure in the galaxy

Wow! That’s an interesting one for sure! Good find!

This object in the top left has very strong radio emissions FWIW

If you look at the SDSS Spectroscopy layer for this group you see that there is actually quite a lot of overlapping in what appears to the eye to be a single “messed up” galaxy
