Claim: Image of dogs surrounding the dead body of Pappu Shukla, a homeless man from Gujarat who fed them every day.

Fact: While the image of dogs surrounding the dead body of the person who fed them regularly is true, the corpse is not of a Gujarati man named Pappu Shukla. It is of a Yemen citizen named Isamial Hadi who fed the dogs daily. Hence the claim made in the post is MISLEADING.

Reverse image search of the photo in the post led us to an Arabic news article which carried a similar image as that in the post. According to the article, the corpse is of a homeless Yemeni man Ismail Hadi and he used to feed the dogs which are surrounding his corpse daily.

Another news article, which states the same can be read here. Also, few social media posts which shared the same image and video of the incident claiming the man is a Yemeni can be seen here and here. With all this, we can conclude that the corpse is of a Yemen citizen named Ismail Hadi and not a Gujarati named Pappu Shukla.

To sum it up, corpse of a Yemen Citizen surrounded by dogs fed by him is shared as that of a homeless man from Gujarat.

Share.
