A video is being shared with the claim that the Indian Army celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi at Galwan valley where since May, the Chinese and Indian troops have engaged in aggressive face-offs and skirmishes.
"Ganpati Bappa in Galwan Valley Ladhak..Jai Hind," reads the caption of one such post. In the video, the army can be seen dancing to the beats of traditional drums.
Video shows soldiers celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi at Galwan Valley.
The claim is false.
A reverse image search indicated that the video is at least a year old. The video was shot in 2019, when a Maratha Light Infantry regiment celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi festival at the Shingo River Valley near Kargil.
'Ganesh pooja procession of INDIAN ARMY at SHINGO RIVER VALLEY,' reads the caption of the Youtube video which was uploaded on September 2019.
Further, a banner behind the army personnel clearly shows the location 'Shingo River Valley'.
Therefore an old video has resurfaced with false claims.
