I am uploading images using react native. and my API is on php based. when i am testing my API using Post Man it works perfectly. but when I pass an image from react-native app. it show me an error like "[SyntaxError: JSON Parse error: Unexpected end of input]"

What I have tried:

here I am sharing my image post method code of react native app

uploadImageToServer = () => {

    const data = new FormData();
        data.append('image', {
          type: this.state.type,
          uri: this.state.uri,

    fetch('', {
      method: 'POST',
      headers: {
        'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data',
      body: data,
    }).then((response) => response.json())
    .then((json) => {

    }).catch((err) => { console.log(err); });

here passed data format is like
uri = file:///data/user/0/com.tmbs_ekta/cache/rn_image_picker_lib_temp_b9855c66-9093-433e-af06-475ef6e82a3f.jpg type = image/jpeg name = rn_image_picker_lib_temp_b9855c66-9093-433e-af06-475ef6e82a3f.jpg

and here is my server-side is PHP code
    $target_dir = "profile_pic";
    $target_dir = '../'.$target_dir . "/" .rand() . "_" . time() . ".jpeg";
    if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['image']['tmp_name'], $target_dir)){
        $MESSAGE = "Image Uploaded Successfully." ;
        echo json_encode($MESSAGE);

Please help me with how I can solve this issue, POSTMAN API testing properly works but in react native. it's showing an error
