Fact check: No pinpoint strikes on terror launchpads inside PoK

New Delhi (NVI): The Central Government has refuted media reports which claimed that Indian Army carried out pinpoint airstrike in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK).

The Fact Check Unit of the Press Information Bureau (PIB) busted the fake news carried by various social media outlets.

Earlier, the media outlets reported that the Indian Army carried out ‘pinpoint strikes’ on suspected terror launchpads inside Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (POK) in response to the Pakistani military’s unrelenting efforts to push the maximum number of terrorists into India.

Debunking the claims , PIB Fact Check Unit took to twitter and wrote, “Several media outlets are claiming that the Indian Armed Forces carried out strikes on suspected terror launch pads across the #LOC.

#PIBFactCheck: This claim is #Fake. There has been no firing across the LOC today.”

PIB has initiated a Fact Check handle to check such viral fake news and messages. One can also submit such messages or claims on PIB’s official website.
