Assorted fake news peddlers come together to spread lies that woman drowned her five children in river ‘due to lockdown’

The woman had actually drowned her children after she had a fight with her husband. The woman confessed to the police that she drowned her children because her husband would fight with her every day.

While the country has come together to fight Chinese coronavirus, a certain section of propagandists are rooting for the government’s efforts to fail. Some of them have now taken to spreading fake news on social media to prove that the country-wide lockdown, which has actually been significantly effective in controlling the spread of pandemic, has been a ‘failure’ because it didn’t ‘fail’ the way they hoped it would.

Serial fake news peddler and former Aam Aadmi Party founding member, SC advocate Prashant Bhushan shared an IANS story published by Outlook to claim that the woman drowned her five children in the Ganga in Uttar Pradesh as she had no food for her children as her ‘work stopped due to lockdown’.

The IANS story shared by outlook mentions that the police officials thought she was mentally unsound. The whole claim of her drowning her children due to not getting food during lockdown was attributed to ‘sources’.

Same story was shared by the usual suspects who peddle propaganda under the garb of ‘concern’.

Official Congress leaders also joined in in spreading the news. At this point, do note that there is no official statement of the woman drowning her children due to loss of wages during lockdown.

The same piece of news was picked up by IndiaTimes’ serial fake news peddler Shweta Sengar. She even took the liberty to put the unverified piece of information in the headline.

This piece of news was also shared by the Left and Congress leaders and supporters.

However, truth is far from the claims made by the ‘concerned’ propagandists.

Woman drowns children after a fight with her husband

The woman had actually drowned her children after she had a fight with her husband. The woman confessed to the police that she drowned her children because her husband would fight with her every day. That’s not all, in a video shared by Political Kida, one can hear the woman admitting that she drowned her children because of her fight with her husband.

As one can hear her say she took the step due to the fight with her husband. While the incident of the woman drowning her children is indeed unfortunate, the propagandists masquerading as journalists and politicians used it to attack the Modi government over lockdown.

Despite the proofs, some were still not ready to believe. Leftist leader Kavita Krishnan expressed ‘concerns’ and claimed that the woman’s statement was being taken under distress.

The Police also verified that there was indeed food in her house and the reason behind her killing her children was not lack of food due to lockdown.

But then, why let facts get in the way of propaganda.
