DHARWAD: 2 HELD FOR SPREADING FAKE NEWS ON SOCIAL MEDIA

DHARWAD: Vidyagiri Police have arrested two youths on the charge of creating and spreading a fake news post about coronavirus on social media.

They had created a fake news post using the photo of a Hubballi-based journalist claiming that the man in the picture was the person who tested positive for COVID-19 when the first case was reported from Hosayellapur here on March 22.

Deputy Commissioner Deepa Cholan had written to the police seeking investigation in the matter after this fake news was found circulating on social media.
