A shocking story run by major Indian media outlets to malign Pakistan has in fact turned out to be from India itself. Few days ago, Indian media outlets ran an unverified image of a padlocked grave stating that the practice was common in Pakistan for parents to protect the deceased bodies of their ‘daughters’ from being raped.

The ‘story’ was carried by most major Indian news outlets, including Asian News International (ANI), the Times of India, News18, Times Now, NDTV, and ThePrint. However, fact-checkers instead discovered that the picture was actually from a cemetery located in Hyderabad, India.
The cemetery is situated opposite to Masjid-e-Salar Mulk, a mosque in Darab Jung Colony, Madannapet in Hyderabad, India.
The graves were padlocked by families to prevent others from burying more bodies at the final resting place of their loved ones.
