You have not brought one single fact to the discussion, but you are trying to muddying the waters.
In regards for declaring false MAYDAY FUEL and what the punishment is for that, you have to ask your colleagues or friends in India, there it seems to be practiced.
This sensational news started by avherald based on TSB report A17F0230. This may be based on an ASR crew filed. It is no longer available anywhere on TSB site.

Like all aviation sites, avherald has a convenient self-serving rule.to remove MAYDAY FUEL incidents if the plane lands above final reserve. I am guessing, they are waiting for the news subside and change it from I-Incident to N-News (or) delete.
DGCA/AAIB would have access to CVR and fuel levels well before TSB.
So let's hope TSB and ACA do a proper investigation and nothing is swept under the rug.
