Debunking Misinformation: ITBP Jawans Injured in Jammu and Kashmir's Banihal Truck Accident

As soon as the video came to our knowledge, we tried to find if the claims are true or false. We conducted research and found a news report on Punjab Kesari regarding the video.

According to the report, four people, including three ITBP jawans, were injured when a private truck overturned near Kharpora village of Banihal on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway. The truck was going from Jammu to Kashmir Valley. A police officer informed that immediately after the incident after that a rescue operation was started by local people, police, traffic police and volunteers of NGO Banihal.

He also said that all the four injured have been rescued from the accident spot. And have been taken to SDH Banihal for treatment, where their condition is said to be out of danger.

Moreover, we also found the video on Jammu and Kashmir based media outlet ‘Greater Kashmir. the media outlet posted the video with caption “Three #ITBP Jawans among four injured after truck plunges into gorge in J&K’s #Banihal”.

The claims made by Pakistanis are false and baseless. There was no attack on the soldiers and it was an accident and no casualty was reported.

Intent

Pakistan-based propaganda accounts circulate video of accidents with false claims to set their propaganda against India and Indian security forces.
