A video of a Pakistani police officer has gone viral on social media. The incident in the video is said to have taken place in Kashmir.
The four minute video footage shows a police officer tearing up a motorcycle and taking out guns hidden inside it. The video, which was taken in Pakistan, has been spread on social media with a false claim stating that it was taken in Jammu and Kashmir.
Since the abrogation of Article 370 and 35A in Jammu and Kashmir, various fake information about Kashmir has continued to go viral on the Internet. This gun seizing video is included in the never-ending list of fake videos on Kashmir.
Officers in the viral video were dressed in Pakistani police attire. This undoubtedly proves the origin of the video and clears the false claim that it was taken in India.
The incident happened earlier this month in Kohat region in Pakistan. The information regarding the video has been uploaded on the Facebook page of the Kohat District Police Department. It was reported that the weapons seized on the motorcycle were confiscated.
Therefore, it is certain that the viral video was not taken in Kashmir. Don't spread fake news. Many people are affected by fake news without bias. There have also been casualties due to the effect of fake news.
