An image that appears to show Indian opposition leaders Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann sitting in front of a liquor store has been shared thousands of times in social media posts. The image -- which some social media users appeared to believe was genuine -- circulated weeks before state elections in Punjab which the politicians' party is fielding candidates for. However, the image has been doctored to change the backdrop -- the original photo shows the two politicians sitting in a field.
