WHAT WE FOUND

We conducted a reverse image search on the picture and found an article by a Thai daily newspaper, Khaosod, posted on 31 August 2019.

The report mentioned that a Facebook user posted a series of pictures about this road situated at Thailand's Chanuman District at the Amnat Charoen Province.

It also stated that the the road has been damaged because of the heavy rainfall.

The image is from 2019.

We found another report from a Thai news portal, Thai PBS NEWS, from 1 September 2019, which carried the same image.

Clearly, an old image from Thailand was falsely claimed to be from India.
