Imran Khan’s photo from 2014 being falsely used in 2022 assassination attempt

Imran Khan, a former prime minister of Pakistan, had a photo posted on his official Twitter account in 2014 that has been misrepresented in stories about a shooting attack on November 3, in which he was shot in the shin.

One Facebook user posted a picture of the former cricketer (above) lying on white sheets with his hands outstretched. He was wearing dark clothing.

JUST IN: #BNNPakistan Reports, according to the post’s caption. Imran Khan, the former prime minister of Pakistan, was wounded in the foot on Thursday during a rally, according to an aide of Imran Khan.

Similar posts may be seen on Twitter, which has hundreds of likes and shares, and on Facebook.

Nearly 200 kilometers (120 miles) from the capital, in Wazirabad, there were injuries to several members of his convoy. A suspect had been detained, according to Marriyum Aurangzeb, minister of information.

However, the image circulated on social media was taken in 2014 and was not taken at the shooting in 2022.

It was published in 2014 with the description “Night at the Dharna” on the former prime minister’s verified Twitter account

VERDICT

Miscaptioned. The photo being circulated was published in 2014 and does not depict Imran Khan’s shooting’s aftermath in November 2022.
