Fake and misleading information is often posted on social media. Journalists and verified users of news channels are also involved in posting this misleading and fake information. Verified user Shubhankar Mishra @shubhankrmishra posted a post on Twitter. He wrote in his post that a doctor from Ghaziabad, Arvind Vats Akela, has been threatened with beheading.

Mishra wrote- Now in Ghaziabad Dr. received the threat of beheading. Doctor Arvind Vats Akela was threatened with beheading like Udaipur and Amravati. Arvind Vats is also associated with Hindu organizations. Arvind Ji cried on Aaj Tak/India Today. – Said children are not able to go to duty due to fear.” {English Translation}

At the same time, many other users have also made the same claim.

Fact Check:

We investigated the claim of Shubhankar Mishra. During that, the DFRAC team found a post by Ghaziabad Police on Twitter. According to this post “ Cyber Cell , SOG SP City1 and police station Sihani Gate Police successfully disclosed the fake incident of threat on WhatsApp received by Dr. Arvind Vats Akela, resident of Police Station Sihani Gate area. Fake information was given by Dr. to gain popularity. Detailed Press Note “

According to the police press note, Arvind Vats Akela had resorted to a fake incident to gain cheap popularity.

There we checked the ID of Shubhankar Mishra. According to the information given in his bio, he is the news anchor of Aaj Tak. There have been allegations of spreading fake and misleading information many times from the ID of Shubhankar Mishra. DFRAC has already fact-checked the fake and misleading posts of Shubhankar Mishra. Which you can read here-
