Video of a landslide in Indonesia is being falsely shared as in Shillong (Meghalaya)


A video of a massive landslide is doing rounds on social media with a claim that the incident occurred in Shillong (Meghalaya). FACTLY has found that the video clip is related to a landslide in Indonesia, not India. The video clip shows a landslide in the settlements of Chiangjur & Sukanagara in Indonesia. The incident occurred in April 2020. As the video went viral with the same claim, the Meghalaya Police have also clarified that the video is not related to Shillong.
