Paris, July 15: The photoshopped picture of a Cadian Sikh who was wrongly identified as one of the terrorists behind the November 2015 Paris attacks has surfaced again after the attacks in Nice, media reports said. Less than a year after being accused of the attacks in Paris, an image circulating online claims that Veerender Jubbal was involved in the Nice attack. Last November, people tweeted that Jubbal was one of the Paris attackers after an image of his was photoshopped to make it look like he was wearing a suicide vest. The image - which was printed in some of the world’s biggest newspapers - was quickly debunked by social media users, who noticed the iPad he was holding had been photoshopped as a Quran, reported Buzzfeed. A closer look showed the image had been heavily photoshopped. Jubbal spoke out against the fake image, and said he believed he was targeted by supporters of Gamergate because he was an outspoken critic of the controversial online movement. Jubbal had then described the experience as “deeply disturbing”. (IANS)
