There is a fake news circulating in social Media (WhatsApp) in the form of a video showing a person who caught fire while charging his mobile phone. It is alleged in the video that this incident happened in Kannur Airport.
The same video was circulated in June 2018 stating that the incident had happened in a mall in Dubai and in Morocco. As everybody knows, Kannur Airport started operations only in December 2018. Moreover the place shown in the video does not resemble Kannur Airport as can be made out by anyone who has seen Kannur Airport.
District Police Chief, Kannur has been requested by Kannur Airport to get enquiry conducted through cyber cell regarding the circulation of the fake video. Kannur Airport requests passengers and public not to be misled by such fake propaganda.
