FACT CHECK 

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim, and found it to be MISLEADING. 

Performing a Reverse Image Search, our team traced a Facebook post carrying the same viral video, dated May 8, 2023, with a caption: “Fresh snowfall at Daksum #Kokernag #snowfall #Kashmir #sinthan top #exclusive video”. 

When the video began to circulate on social media with the assertion that it was recorded on September 22, 2023, Sajad Wani clarified that the video was old. He stated that he initially uploaded this video as a Facebook reel back in May 2023. He has urged users not to share the footage as recent evidence of snowfall creating unnecessary panic among the people. 

Local media channels have also discredited the viral video as misinformation, stating that there was no recent occurrence of snowfall in the area.

Therefore, it is clear that an old video of J-K’s Daksum Kokernag snowfall has been falsely shared as recent.
