India Lands 'UFO' In Pak, Creates Panic

New Delhi: Has a UFO (unidentified flying object) landed in
Pakistan from India? Panicky authorities in Pakistan certainly
thought so and sent all concerned on either side of the borders
separating the two nations into a tizzy.

Discuss: We can't trust Pakistan

The Border Security Force (BSF) went on a state of high alert in
Punjab following the report of the UFO taking off from India and
landing in Pakistan.

According to a senior BSF official, the reported flying object
landed in Pakistan territory around 300 yards from the zero line
near the BSF's Fatehpur check post in the village of Chann Kalan
on Thursday evening.

BSF Constable Jagdish Parishad, who was on duty at the
international border on Thursday evening, was quoted by the
Daily Times as saying that he had seen "a flying object like a
hot-air balloon carrying three persons, who disembarked after
landing in Pakistan's territory".

But according to his Senior Commandant Darbara Singh, it could
have been a para-glider or a fan-glider or even a hot air

"Now it has become difficult to ascertain the nature of the
flying object that landed in the Pakistani territory, as the BSF
constable deployed at the post was not educated enough to
identify the object," claimed Singh.

"Since the constable has never seen any para-glider, fan-glider
or a hot-air balloon, it is difficult to verify the authenticity
of the matter," he added.

"The BSF has already handed over a protest note to the Pakistan
authorities to provide necessary information on the landing
object," he further said.

Meanwhile, the police station on the Indian side had lodged a
case under the Indian Foreign Passport Act and Foreign Act, a
police official said. ANI
