Updated on 5 September, 2018 at 4:25 pm By

Press Trust of India (PTI) fired a photographer who mislabeled and published 2015 Chennai airport images. The error originated when several users on Twitter spotted images showing an air-side view of a waterlogged Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport in Ahmedabad.

The Press Trust of India acknowledged the error on Friday and said it had terminated the services of the photographer. PTI responded after the matter got noticed by Smriti Irani, who is the newly appointed Information & Broadcasting Minister.

 

A number of reputed publications including The Indian Express and The Hindustan Times had used the image on their front pages, many readers identified the images to be those of Chennai rather than Gujarat. The I & B minister then asked PTI to send a notification to media houses about the blunder.
