The video of a cracked road is doing the rounds on social media claiming that it’s from the Turkey earthquake.
The post reads: तुरकी में कल फिर 7.0 के दो भूकंप के झटके. ..काल के भूकंप से तहस नहस हुए देस की कल ऐसी तस्वीर देखने को मिली
Here’s the link to the above post.
NewsMobile fact-checked the post, and found it to be misleading.
Putting the image through a Reverse Image Search, we found the image in an article by The Hindustan Times, dated February 20, 2023. According to its caption, the image is from Jammu and Kashmir, India.
The same image was also found in a tweet by ANI, dated February 20, 2013. The caption reads: J&K | Cracks & damage to roads in Ramban, 13 houses damaged due to landslides. A local, Abdul Ghani says “13 houses, incl. mine, damaged; 6 of them have completely collapsed. We’ve been given tents & some utensils. We request the government to adjust us somewhere. We’re homeless now.”
Thus, it is clear that the image is from Jammu and Kashmir, India, NOT Turkey.
