Two police officers have been sacked after an inquiry found their claim to be the first Indian couple to climb Everest was fake.

Dinesh and Tarakeshwari Rathod said last year that they had successfully reached the 8,850m summit.

But police in Maharashtra state on Monday confirmed the couple had "morphed photographs" to show a successful ascent on 23 May.

The inquiry was launched after the pair's claims were queried by climbers.
