Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday tweeted a video of what he claimed was police action in Uttar Pradesh but turned out to be of an incident that took place in 2013 in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

“Indian police’s pogrom against Muslims in UP,” Khan had tweeted.

Here are the screenshots of the tweet:

He, however, deleted the video after facing a massive backlash on social media for posting the fake video.

“Tweet Fake News. Get Caught. Delete Tweet. Repeat,” Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted with hashtag ‘Old habits die hard’.

The seven-year-old video showed police action against a group of people in Bangladesh. At one point in the video, a policeman could be seen holding a shield of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), proving it to be a scene from Bangladesh.

The RAB is an anti-terrorism unit of the Bangladesh Police.
