The picture of a Hindustan Times web story is being circulated on social media which says that Assam may witness a 7-8 magnitude Earthquake on Friday (April 29). This has created panic among the people.
Headline8 did a fact check of the picture and here is what we found out:
We did a google reverse image search of the post and we could not find any matching results.
So to further the investigation, we went through the official Hindustan Times website- https://www.hindustantimes.com/ and we could not find any web story regarding the matter on it. We searched further and we found out that the web story that is being circulated is 15-year-old news, published on September 7, 2006.
Here is the link of the original news
The Hindustan Times web story which says that Assam may witness a 7-8 magnitude Earthquake on Friday (April 29) is a misleading one and is fake.
