A photograph of a wrecked building has been doing rounds within communities on social media platforms, claiming to be located in north Kashmir and hit by the earthquake Tuesday evening.

Several claims have been attached with the photograph, including the death of three persons in Kupwara. Even more absurd, a police station. Or a regional politician’s residence.

However, when the image was reverse searched by The Kashmir Walla, it was found to be a building from Turkey. It was clicked by Firat Ozdemir for Anadolu Agency.

The country was hit by repeated fatal earthquakes in February this year that killed over 60,000 people.

A Kupwara District Administration official confirmed to The Kashmir Walla that no casualties have been reported in Tuesday evening earthquake.
