LAHORE: An inquiry report on negative propaganda against the army on social media after the Lasbela helicopter crash has found links of 178 accounts to the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf.

According to sources, social media activists and their handlers have been tracked down after an investigation. Over 2,350 posts were made through 580 accounts and 18 Indian accounts were also included in the campaign. Sources said that cases would be lodged against the accused under the relevant laws.

A smear campaign had started against the Pakistan Army after an Army Aviation helicopter went missing in Lasbela during a relief operation in flooded areas. On the other hand, several social media activists of the PTI have apologised for their action.

    "Jo Jesa Hai Usko Wesa Kyun Na Bawan Kiya Jaye" - Manto. Negative smear campaign seriously? People are just describing the things, that they are observing.

      I was listening to an Indian Vlog where a man was saying that the thing and propaganda India was doing while spending millions is now done freely by Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf and Imran Khan. A foreign agent and Fitna should be punished and sentenced to death as he has violated the constitution.

    Out of 580 accounts, 178 were PTI supporters and what about the rest of the guys? Can our world class agencies also identify them as well or this is all they need. Pakistani public had enough of your lies that want us to digest.
