Our Investigation

We found a report by Economic Times about this video. According to the report, the 1 minute 47 seconds video which depicts the incident of Pakistan military personnel raising the white flag to retrieve the bodies of their soldiers was released by the Indian Army. The incident happened in Hajipir sector of PoK on September 10-11 when Indian troops killed a Pakistani Sepoy Ghulam Rasool of their Punjab Regiment. Initially, Pakistani soldiers, under the cover of intense ceasefire violations, attempted to recover the body, but another Pakistani soldier was killed while doing so.

After repeated attempts for two days, the Pakistani Army could not recover the bodies of their soldiers. Finally, on September 13, Pakistan's Punjab Regiment soldiers raised the white flag and tried to recover the bodies.

White flag is raised to signal peace and truce.

The Indian Army respects the dead and so permitted the Pakistanis to retrieve the bodies of their soldiers.

The video was also tweeted by a reputed journalist Aditya Raj Kaul on Sep 14 with a similar story.


The claim is false that the Indian Army raised the white flag to retrieve the body of Indian soldiers. The video depicts an incident of Pakistan military personnel raising the white flag to retrieve the bodies of their soldiers.
