Date:

An image showing a girl driving a rickshaw with an old man sitting behind is widely shared on social media. It is being claimed that the poor father made his daughter an Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) in the police by driving a rickshaw.

The image is shared on Facebook with a caption: “ਬਾਪੂ ਨੇ ਰਿਕਸ਼ਾ ਚਲਾ ਕੇ ਕਮਾਏ ਪੈਸੇ ਨਾਲ ਆਪਣੀ ਧੀ ਨੂੰ ASI ਬਣਾਇਆ, ਸਲੂਟ ਹੈ ਇਸ ਬਾਪੂ ਦੀ ਸੋਚ ਨੂੰ” (English translation: Father made his daughter ASI with the money earned by driving a rickshaw, salute to this father’s thinking)

FACT CHECK 

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

We found that the old man sitting on the rickshaw was holding a board in his hand which has ‘Follow Star Mason’ written on it. Doing a Reverse Image Search, we found the same image uploaded on the Instagram page of Star Masons Entertainment on January 15, 2016, and it had been reposted by Simran Kaur Mundi. 

Star Mason Entertainment is an entertainment and music company that sponsors shows of singers, actors etc.

Scanning the viral picture on Simran Kaur Mundi’s Instagram account, we found that she had shared this picture on January 15, 2016, from her account. Nowhere in the caption, she has mentioned anything about the man being her father. Simran is a Punjabi actress and former Miss India Universe 2008.
