Fake news Amritsar train driver suicide circulated social media –
Numerous internet based life clients on Facebook and Twitter are sharing pictures and recordings of a similar episode with indistinguishable cases.
What is reality?
Alt News addressed SHO Gurwinder Singh of Chattiwind police headquarters, where an instance of suicide close Tarn zone has been accounted for. Singh stated, “This suicide is no chance identified with the prepare disaster. This man was in despondency from most recent four months.”
An article distributed by Dainik Jagran on October 22, 2018, expressed, “truth be told, the body swinging from a device close Bohdu town was of an occupant from Bhikhwind, Tarn named Paramjeet. It is said that Paramjeet was rationally sick and potentially thus he has submitted suicide. Police is researching the case.” It might be noticed that a before report from Dainik Jagran has alluded indistinguishable individual from Harpal Sah. While despite everything we need lucidity on the name of the individual whose photographs are flowing via web-based networking media, in view of our discussion with the police and media reports, it very well may be expressed with sureness that the said individual isn’t the driver of the doomed prepare associated with the Amritsar disaster.
In addition, the letter which is being shared alongside the case that DMU driver (Arvind Kumar) has submitted suicide is the announcement given by him to the police and NOT a suicide note.

In all instances of late tragedies, falsehood via web-based networking media has been a consistent issue. As of late, amid Kerala surges, Alt News uncovered various instances of mis/disinformation. Prior, Alt News uncovered how endeavors were made to communalise the Amritsar prepare catastrophe by guaranteeing that the name of the prepare driver was Imtiaz Ali. Presently, a suicide inconsequential to the Amritsar prepare catastrophe is being passed off as the suicide by the driver of the doomed prepare. We wish to accentuate once more – in the midst of passionate change in the general public, for example, the one because of a cataclysmic event or a catastrophe, be amazingly prudent about sharing provocative data via web-based networking media.
