A viral message on twitter claiming that an Indian Airforce jet has been shot down by Nepal, founds no reality after Indian Press Information Bureau (PIB) revealed the truth. Taking to its official social media handle PIB fact check on Saturday contradicted the claims made through a viral message in which Indian Fighter Aircraft was shot down. "It's Fake, No such claimed action has been conducted by Indian airforce on any neighbouring country, PIB fact check told.
Earlier from a twitter handle a fake tweet was made portraying Indian Fighter Aircraft was shown shot down.
