A picture collage has gone viral on social media which consist of two pictures- one of an underprivileged girl and another one of a lady cop. As per the claim in the caption, the underprivileged girl on the left worked hard and went on to become an IPS officer.
The caption of the picture read: “Inspiring story of an IPS officer with her great achievement. 1 like=1 respect & 1 share= 1000 respects.”
At the time of filing this report, the above post had already gotten over 1,000 shares.
When the team of fact checkers at NewsMobile checked the viral post, we found that even though both the pictures are real, they are not related to each other.
On the putting both the pictures individually through Reverse Image Search, we found that the picture on the left of the underprivileged is actually from Pakistan.
The picture was taken on March 28th, 2015 in Pakistan’s Sahiwal by a professional photographer Sohail Karmani who is also a professor of Writing at New York University in Abu Dhabi.
Meanwhile, the second picture of the woman police officer is actually a screen grab from a Tamil movie ‘Thimiru Pudichavan’.
Hence, this proves that the claim in the above viral post is false.
