Two unrelated images have gone viral on social media with the claim that they are the same person – a retired Army officer who was injured during the ongoing farmers’ protest.

Juxtaposed image of Sikh army personnel and the other of a Sikh farmer injured during the protest in Delhi is being shared on social media with the claim that both images are of the same man. One when he worked in the army and the other when he is working as a farmer. The image is being shared in context with the ongoing farmers' protest in Delhi against the three farm laws. Protesting farmers fear that the laws may deprive them of the Minimum Support Price (MSP).
