The government has accused a YouTube channel called News Headlines of spreading fake news against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Supreme Court of India, the Chief Justice of India and the Election Commission. According to the Press Information Bureau (PIB), the YouTube channel is reported to have 10,000 subscribers and 32 thousand views.

“ONE #YouTube ‘News Headlines’ channel with nearly 10k subscribers and 32k views was found to be spreading #Fake News about Prime Minister, Supreme Court of India, Chief Justice of India and Election Commission India election,” the fact-checking PIB tweeted.

The YouTube channel has been accused of spreading fake news such as “elections will be held on the ballot by order of the Chief Justice of India.” It has also spread fake news as re-election will be held for 131 seats in the Uttar Pradesh Parliament.
