UFO Spotted Near Delhi Airport

On Oct. 30, Delhi's Indira Gandhi International (IGI) air traffic control (ATC) viewed suspicious flying objects three times near and around the airport. Security agencies guarding IGI Airport have been put on high alert following the ‘regular spotting’ of suspicious flying objects in and around the airport. On Tuesday too, the ATC had apparently noticed a flying object (a drone) over the runway, but had no visual evidence to support its claim. On Wednesday night, the pilot of an Air Vistara flight from Bhubaneswar had complained of being distracted by a laser beam right while landing at IGI’s runway 29, putting the lives of hundreds of passengers at risk.

The pilot claimed that he was 6 nautical miles away from runway when he observed the laser beam, which distracted him.

The Delhi Police have prohibited the use of laser beams by any individual or group or organizers in areas around the airport under Section 144 of CrPC.

On Friday, the flying objects were first noticed by an air force officer.

“A member of Indian Air Force (IAF) sits at the ATC tower of Delhi airport. At 10:44am on Friday, he first noticed a flying object over runway 9-27, the smallest runway of Delhi airport. He reported two more objects at 10:50am and 10:55am, flying outside the airport boundary. On Tuesday, an ATC staff had claimed of having spotted a drone-like object but there is no concrete evidence was discovered to support the claims. This time also, we do not have any evidence. But this is alarming,” said an airport official.

“Even the ATC radar couldn’t capture anything on Tuesday. On Friday, some staff claimed that the radar had captured a flying object. But later we found no evidence. No one is sure as to what is happening. But we have put everyone on alert as we do not want to take any risks, especially with the VIP movements due to the India-Africa Forum Summit,” the official added.

Sources said that a meeting of Intelligence Bureau, Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), Bureau for Civil Aviation Security and Delhi Police had been conducted and the Indian Air Force (IAF) had been asked to keep a strict watch on aerial threats. 
It's not the first time this year a major Indian airport has gone on alert when unusual things were reported in the sky. Back on May 23, five unexpected, uninvited and unmanned objects put the Mumbai airport on alert. The current rash of aerial objects over IGI Airport remains unresolved. But it's serious enough that the Indian Air Force "has been authorized to shoot down any suspicious object, if need be."
