In the video, it could be heard that three people discussing a ‘plot’ for the terror attack which claimed the lives of 44 CRPF soldiers on February 14.
Avi Dandiya, who often associates with another pro-AAP blogger and fake news propagandist Dhruv Rathee, was caught spreading a fake audio clip on Pulwama attack, claiming that the Pulwama attack was an inside job. The video, which is deleted now, was with over a million and was also picked up by various Pakistani websites to use against India.

The audio clip was created by taking parts of old interviews/audio clips of politicians and using them out of context to make it appear like a conversation.
Dandiya had also been mainstreamed by pro-AAP video blogger Dhruv Rathee who invited him on a debate on demonetisation. Dandiya regularly collaborates with Rathee to spread propaganda through videos.
