A viral tweet claiming a Rafale fighter jet has crashed near Ambaba air base is doing rounds in the social media. It also says that a pilot was killed in the accident. The forward was attributed to the Indian Air Force with the twitter handle IAF_MCC.

However, the Press Information Bureau dismissed the reports that a Rafale jet has crashed near the Ambala air base and the government agency termed the news reports as fake.

PIB tweeted, “Claim: An alleged tweet by @IAF_MCC claims that a combat aircraft Rafale jet has crashed near Ambala Airbase due to technical fault and a pilot is martyred

#PIBFactCheck: The image is #Morphed. No such tweet has been posted by IAF. Also, no such incident has taken place #FakeNews,”
