NDTV shared a ten-year-old video in which a young girl could be seen opposing troops. While the video was from Palestine, NDTV claimed it to be from Ukraine.
NDTV, whose editors have been caught spreading fake and misleading news on several occasions, shared an old video claiming it to be from Ukraine.
In the video, a young girl could be seen opposing troops. NDTV shared the video claiming a Ukrainian girl is stopping an advancing army. Congress leader Mohammed Zoya Khan shared the video.
It was later revealed that the video was ten years old and was from Palestine. The young girl in the picture is Ahed Tamimi, protesting against Israeli forces in the West Bank.
In another misleading news, NDTV interviewed one medical student, Shubhanshu, who had returned from Ukraine on Tuesday (March 1).
On arrival in Delhi, Shubhanshu told NDTV that the situation was like hell in Ukraine, but once the Indian Embassy took charge of their evacuation, the facilities provided by the Indian Embassy were like a five-star hotel.
In the telecast, NDTV was running the ticker ‘It was like hell’, giving the impression that the arrangements made by the Indian Embassy were like hell.
