Uttar Pradesh Police exposes NDTV’s lies

NDTV today published a story which claimed that the Uttar Pradesh Police had jailed 4 donkeys for allegedly eating expensive plants.

The Uttar Pradesh Police clarified that UP Police had nothing to do with the incident and pulled up NDTV by asking them to check facts first before publishing the story.

NDTV’s Managing Editor Suprana Singh, came to defend the lies by asking UP Police to first read the story before asking NDTV to check facts. A bit rich coming from a channel which employs people who have severe lack of comprehension skills and allegedly promotes censors stories.

The UP Police then asked Suparna Singh to probably practice what she preaches, considering the video they had posted mentioned UP Police twice.

UP Police then quoted the anchor in the video NDTV had posted to call out Suparna Singh’s bluff.

At which point, Singh shifted goal post and said how she was talking about the ‘print’ story and not the ‘video’ which indeed does question why UP Police is busy detaining donkeys while real criminals run loose.

She then said that the video will be removed, but the story will stay which does not mention UP Police as Singh says. One wonders, then, who ‘jailed’ the donkeys in Uttar Pradesh, if not the Police?

To this, UP Police threw some shade and wished NDTV good luck for having two separate versions for video and print for a single story.

After Mumbai Police, UP Police is learning the ropes of social media and how!
