February 14, 2023By reverse searching one of the key-frames of the clip on Yandex, Alt News came across various news reports from 2015 on YouTube which carried the video. One such report was from Aaj Tak which showed the same video that is going viral in the context of the Pulwama Attack. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4rnfQwbess] According to the report, the women seen in the video are the daughters of Colonel Munindra Nath Rai, who died from bullet wounds in a Srinagar hospital on January 27, 2015, after he had got severely injured in an armed encounter with Hizbul Mujahideen militants. This was just a day after Rai had received a Gallantry medal on Republic Day. In another video report by IndiaTV, the late Colonel's daughters can be seen. They are the same women as in the viral video. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQ6WiGYKTb8] Hence, the viral video shared in the context of the Pulwama Attack is not related to the incident. In fact, the video is from January 2015, where the daughters of the martyred Colonel M N Rai were paying their last respects to their late father. Vansh Shah is an intern with Alt News.
