Ministry of Home Affairs annual report has used a picture of Spain-Morocco border in the city of Ceuta which is an Spanish autonomous city located on the north coast of Africa, bordered by the Strait of Gibraltar and sharing a 6.4 km land border with Morocco.

Within hours of an Alt News exposé showing how the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) annual report is using a picture of Spain-Morocco border to show Indian border floodlighting, officials in MHA have reportedly admitted to the gaffe and the Home Ministry has ordered an internal investigation into this issue. The 2016-17 annual report by Ministry of Home Affairs has used a 2006 photograph of the Spanish-Moroccan border in the city of Ceuta shot by Javier Moyano. Alt News story can be read here.

According to a report on NDTV website, Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi has demanded an explanation from officials. “If it’s a mistake by the ministry, we will apologise,” Mr Mehrishi has said. The Home Secretary has reportedly also asked the Border Security Force (BSF) to explain where it got the picture.

Source told Times of India that the MHA annual report has been out in the public domain for almost three months now and that it will be difficult to correct the gaffe as printing of new copies of the report is a huge task.

Great Find Alt News. “Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi has demanded an explanation from officials. “If it’s a mistake by the ministry, we will apologise,” “… Why would he say that even before the investigation has started?!?! Sounds odd.
