Arnab Goswami, an Indian journalist, has once again been caught on national television peddling another anti-Pakistan conspiracy theory that has no basis whatsoever. He claimed that his “sources” in Afghanistan informed him that Pakistan Army officers were staying on the fifth floor of the Serena Hotel in Kabul. PTI’s spokesperson, Abdul Samad Yakoob, responded a day later that Serena hotel in Kabul has only two floors.
The response from Goswami was a laugh. “This is the level of work you do…it’s hilarious,” he said. “So, you know that they’re in the Serena hotel. You called the hotel and you confirmed it. I played a trick on you and said the fifth floor.” Yakoob replied that he had checked the information on Google.
Goswami has received a lot of backlash for having bogus intelligence sources on social media.
