What is the Actual Truth About this Incident? : Fact

The truth is that these assertions are unfounded and fraudulent. There were no reports of this kind. This is essentially Pakistan’s misguided attempt to pin India down on Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi’s helicopter crash. We visited reuters, which wrote on this on May 20, 2024 with the heading “Helicopter carrying Iranian President Raisi crashes, search under way”. A helicopter carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and his foreign minister crashed on Sunday as it was crossing mountain terrain in heavy fog, an Iranian official told Reuters, and rescuers were struggling to reach the site of the incident. The official said the lives of Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian were “at risk following the helicopter crash”, which happened on the way back from a visit to the border with Azerbaijan in Iran’s northwest. The Anadolu news agency reported on X that a Turkish drone had relayed the coordinates of the potential crash site with Iranian police after spotting a source of heat that was thought to be the wreckage of the helicopter.

ISPR-funded Pakistani accounts are circulating self-invented news claiming that Iranian intelligence is on the hunt for an Indian national spotted near the helicopter just hours before President Ebrahim Raisi ‘s boarding. These assertions are unfounded and fraudulent, it is a reality. There were no such reports. This is merely an attempt by Pakistanis to criticize India in relation to Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi’s helicopter crash.


Fact : The fact is that these claims are fake and baseless. No such reports came to light. This is just a failed attempt by Pakistanis to target India regarding the helicopter crash of Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi.
