    Thousands Of People Misinterpreted This Photo Of A Child Slingshotting Soldiers In Kashmir

    Sometimes, things aren't exactly what they seem to be.

    On July 31, former IPS Officer Sanjeev Bhatt tweeted this photo of what looks like a young boy shooting a slingshot at soldiers in Kashmir.

    His tweet presented the boy as attacking the soldiers.

    But a lot of Twitter users have pointed out that Bhatt's tweet doesn't really tell the whole story. In fact, it spins the story in quite bad light.

    Several other angles of the picture show that the young child was actually playing with the Jawans and not attacking them.

    Bhatt's tweet garnered thousands of retweets, prompting several people to post other photos of the incident, in which the jawans are visibly laughing.
