India’s transport ministry trolled for tweeting picture of road safety from Pakistan
The picture, used for the promotion of traffic awareness in India, that showed a policewoman administering traffic was taken from Pakistan back in 2014. Eagle-eyed social media users pointed out the image of Pakistani traffic police and it was removed from Twitter at once.

This is not the first time that authorities in India and Pakistan have mistakenly featured military hardware from the other country in promotional materials.
In March 2011, an advertisement issued by the Pakistan Navy for the Aman-11 multi-national exercise prominently featured images of Indian Navy warships.
The full-page advertisement, which appeared in several Pakistani newspapers, featured the Indian Navy’s Delhi, Godavari and Talwar-class warships.
In January 2010, an Indian government advertisement featured former Pakistan Air Force chief Tanvir Mahmood Ahmed alongside Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and cricketer Kapil Dev.
