A video is being shared on Facebook with a claim that the Pakistan army has attacked a bus full of Indian soldiers. Let’s try to analyze the claim made in the post.
Claim: Videos shows Indian soldiers injured in an attack by Pakistan army.
Fact: The video is related to a road accident in Meghalaya. The BSF jawans in the video got injured as the bus fell into a gorge. The accident has no connection with any attack by the Pakistan army. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.
When the screenshots of the video were run through the Google Reverse Image Search, many news articles with similar visuals were found in the search results. According to an article published by ‘Northeast Now’, the jawans in the video suffered injuries when the ‘bus carrying 20 BSF jawans fell into a deep gorge’. Talking to ‘Northeast Now’, Lakador Syiem (SP, East Jaintia Hills) said, ‘At around 4:30 PM, an overspeeding bus with registration No. AS-05C-2034 went off-road and fell in a gorge (approx 100 ft) at Umtyraa in East Jaintia Hills.’ The same news can also be read here and here.
To sum it up, Meghalaya road accident video is being falsely shared as Pakistan army’s attack on Indian soldiers.
