UFO sighted in Ladakh by Indian Army

New Delhi, Nov 4 (): Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force (ITBP) and Indian army reported sighting of unidentified flying object (UFO) in the hill region of Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir. More than 100 sightings of UFO between the month of August and October were reported and the objects were described as “Unidentified Luminous Objects.”

The reports of sightings were sent to Prime Minister’s Office and the headquarters in Delhi, described as it was seen at day and also in night. The yellowish mysterious spheres appear to take off from skyline of Chinese side and later slowly to cross the sky around 3 to 5 hours before disappearing. The Unidentified Luminous Objects were not low earth-orbiting satellites or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVS), reported the Army officials after studying the cloudy photographs which was taken by Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force.

The mysterious lights were sighted in Ladakh region, a barren, 86,000 sq km heavily militarised zone wedged between Chinese-occupied Aksai Chin and Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir. However, these persistent sightings of UFO by ITBP in this year worried the Indian Army.

Indian Army made some efforts to find the airborne mysterious objects by recording the sightings of drones. UFO sightings had been reported earlier in past, but the continuous sightings of the object has made Indian Army to make a detailed study and survey.

In September, the Indian Astronomical Observatory astronomers watched the UFO sightings and said that the objects spotted were “non-celestial” and ruled out meteors and planets.

Sunil Dhar, a geologist said, “The region which is snowbound in the winter has some roads and this is one of most isolated regions in India.” Scientists believe the mysterious luminous objects are not necessarily from the outer space.

In 2004, a five-member team of glaciologists and geologists headed by Dr Anil Kulkarni filmed a robot like object of four-foot tall that moved along the valley around 50 meters near them and the object then quickly became airborne and disappeared. This report was sent to Union Government and it still remains a mystery.
