A viral tweet claims that an Mi-17 helicopter has crashed in Ladakh, where India and China are currently engaged in a tense stand-off at the Line of Actual Control.

“Indian MI 17 Helicopter has crashed in Ladakh. I’m sure that they have crossed the line,” said a user named Engin Altan Duzyatan on Twitter.

Meanwhile, debunking the fake news, PIB clarified, “The claim is #Fake. The wreckage exhibited is of a helicopter crash that happened in 2018 near Kedarnath, Uttarakhand. No such incident has taken place recently anywhere in #Ladakh.”
