Old image falsely shared as ‘Suicide committed due to lack of facilities during the lockdown’


An image is being shared with the claim that, after the sudden announcement of lockdown by PM Modi, the family of a migrant worker who was walking from Surat (Gujarat) to Uttar Pradesh has committed suicide after they were exhausted on their way. ‘FACTLY’ has found the image to be old. It is not related to any recent incident during the lockdown. The image is of an incident that took place in 2018.
