FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above video and found that the claim attached to the video is FAKE.

We extracted the keyframes of the video and put them through Reverse Image Search. The search results led us to the extended version of the same video on YouTube which was posted on July 16, 2017.

The caption of the video read: “BNSF Military (Abrams Tanks) Train over Tehachapi”

Upon searching, we found that BNSF is a part of the US Military and Tehachapi is a town in California. Moreover, at the beginning of the video, the date appears which is April 22, 2017.

In conclusion, upon putting our discoveries together, we can safely say that the video in question is OLD. It is from the United States, hence, it has no connection to the Indian Army.
