While publishing this news, Punjab Kesari wrote that the biggest hand in making this video viral is that of well-known fraud industrialist Nirav Modi. He has shared the post through his Twitter and has told what K Babar has said during this video chat. In fact, due to the viral video, Babar has been accused of having an objectionable chat with a cricketer’s girlfriend.

Apart from this, many big media houses covered this news. Which includes DNA, NDTV, etc. 

Fact Check:

In further investigation, we found that this account of Nirav Modi is a parody account. Which operates from Lahore, Pakistan. He also tweeted that he has deleted his tweet. This story is baseless.

Apart from this, he wrote in another tweet brother I have deleted my tweet. Watch Fox News, Aaj Tak, NDTV, HT Times, ABP, News 18, local newspapers, etc.

After this tweet came out, many media houses withdrew their news quoting the viral tweet and told that it is fake news. 

Conclusion:

Therefore, it is clear from the FACT check of DFRAC that the news of Babar Azam having an objectionable chat with the girlfriend of a fellow player is fake. Because the parody account in the name of Nirav Modi spread this fake news.
