A curious thing happened soon after news about the #PulwamaAttack broke out. This was the resurrection of a terror attack on a Police station at Shopian that never took place by Indian media.
Here is @sameedkakroo the Jammu Bureau chief of Greater Kashmir who first exposed the fake press release by Jammu & Kashmir BJP IT Cell about an attack on the police post in Shopian that never took place. Note: no such media reported about such incident.
Three hours later Times Now dedicated an entire broadcast ‘breaking news’ on The Newshour Debate about the attack on police post in Shopian that never took place. News Nation & ABP News too joined in to report about a non-existing attack even declaring killing of CRPF jawans.
This entire drama was exposed by Senior Superintendent of Police @Sandeep_IPS_JKP himself urging people to "avoid whatsapp driven fake news cycle Times Now" that was creating an attack on a police post in Shopian district of Kashmir out of thin air.
Finally Times Now had to admit that it was creating a fake attack on police post in Shopian out of thin air and had to apologize, thanks to the vigilance of Senior Superintendent of Police of the Shopian district @Sandeep_IPS_JKP

The Central Reserve Police Force has formed a team of 12 to 15 member fact-checking team to monitor and debunk the flood of fake news related to the #PulwamaAttack
