I am not completely sure what you want Gaurav, since it depends on the perspective. 
In my understanding, it seems to be more like an ontology to represent facts in terms of a fact-checking perspective? So you have a claim c (s="water", p="boiling point”, o=“100”), which has some evidence object (which is a set of proofs which argue in favour or against c) plus some further metadata and final indicator to classify c (in this case something like score =>0.9~1 hopefully)

So it’s like smt which comprehends fact-checking, argumentation mining and credibility factors. I am not aware of an official ontology for that though. If so, you may be interested in have a look here: https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2852495 <https://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2852495> More specifically, the attached image, which is an RDF-based vocabulary to express such information. We did not publish the ontology itself and it could be improved. But definitely should be a good starting point. 

Best regards,
