May 28, 2008[]

on 17th May 2008, while taking a flight from New Delhi to Guwahati, Yekeen was taking a few shots of the beautiful aerial view from above. While taking those pictures, his phone captured a glowing anomaly in the sky that was in a coiled shape.

April 28, 2014[]

On April 28, 2014, at around 21:35, A strange light was sighted above the skies of New Delhi.

"A strange flash of red and orange caught my eyes, and I walked closer to the window to have a better look. What I saw was completely outlandish and I could barely process what was going on. I saw a yellow glowing ring, floating still in the sky. Yes, it was still. It was not moving, but seemed to float, somehow. It had a bright red dazzle around the top half of its body."

October 30, 2015[]

What has an official at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, India, so alarmed? UFOs were spotted multiple times recently over and around this major international airport. How alarmed are airport officials? Enough that government security agencies are on high alert and the Indian Air Force is authorized to shoot down any unidentified objects. What’s going on?

The Hindustan Times reports that on October 27th, an air traffic controller reported seeing a UFO but nothing showed up on any equipment. A few days later on October 30th, an Air Force officer on duty in the air traffic control tower reported seeing three UFOs over a runway and near the airport in an 11 minute time span. An Air Force helicopter was summoned but found nothing.

After the second incident, the Intelligence Bureau, the Indian Air Force (IAF), the Delhi Police, the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security and the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) held an emergency meeting and gave the Indian Air Force the UFO shoot-down order.

Why is the Indian government reacting so strongly to these UFO sightings? Do they know something about these UFOs that they don’t want the public to find out? UFO sightings are on the rise across India. A well-reported sighting occurred in Kanpur, India, over the summer when a young boy took very clear photographs of a saucer-shaped UFO. In September, a UFO was photographed over flood-ravaged areas of the Assam state in northeast India. That’s near the area where stories persist of an underground UFO base hidden in the Himalayas.
