The IFCN lists ten verified fact checking organizations from India.

The twitter response thread contains comments implicating Alt News as the offending organization, including this tweet hours before the IFCN announcment:


Zebra Fact Check called on the IFCN to disclose what criteria it uses to announce a complaint that an IFCN-verified signatory has violated its Code of Principles.

Zebra Fact Check has filed a number of complaints through the IFCN but without noting any public announcement about any of the complaints.
