Image from Assam shared as flood visuals in Pakistan.

False Social

The image is not from Pakistan but from Assam, India.

In the past several times media organizations have shared old and unrelated images and videos as recent footage of incidents from around the world. 

In the backdrop of this, an image shared by a Hindi news channel- Zee News shows a picture of trains submerged in water. The report by Zee News claims that it shows Pakistan’s condition after the country was recently hit by severe flash floods.

The headline of the news reports states “Pakistan floods: Railways services disrupted in Balochistan for 10 days, train ops reaches ‘dead end’”

 Pakistan is experiencing its worst floods this century, with rivers breaking their banks, flash flooding, and glacial lakes bursting. At least one-third of the country is under water.
