On Tibet Border

'Not necessarily from outer space', reports paper

Mysterious UFOs have returned to a remote region on the Tibetan
border, according to sightings by Indian troops stationed in the
area. The UFOs, which have been reported for years, are said to
have included a strange "robot like" figure seen by Indian
scientists in 2004 walking along a mountain valley - which then
"rapidly became airborne" and flew away.

We learn of the latest military sightings through the trenchant
journalism of India Today, which says that Indian army troops
and gendarmerie units of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force
(ITBP) have been submitting reports of strange luminous airborne
objects since the summer above the Ladakh region. Ladakh is a
remote, mostly uninhabited but heavily militarised zone along
the border with Tibet and China.

It seems that the Indian army has checked carefully and the UFOs
in question are not manned or unmanned aircraft: these are
routinely sighted in the area but can picked up on radar -
unlike the UFOs. Indian army radars have been unable to track
the strange shining objects. An unmanned aircraft despatched
towards one UFO did sight it, but then "lost sight of the

According to India Today, the Indian government - stimulated to
curiosity by the frequent reports from the military - despatched
a scientific expedition to the region in September. The Indian
boffins saw the UFOs but were unable to establish what they

The paper reports, magnificently:

Scientists say the mysterious objects are not necessarily from
outer space.

(In fact the sense of the boffins interviewed by IT was that
there is no reason to think they are from outer space, but this
is much better.)

We also learn that UFOs have been reported in the Ladakh region
for many years, with the best of these reports coming from a
group of Indian government scientists who were in the area in
2004 studying glaciers:

A five-member group of geologists and glaciologists led by Dr
Anil Kulkarni of the isro's Space Applications Centre in
Ahmedabad were on a research trip through the barren Samudra
Tapu Valley. They filmed a four-foot tall 'robot-like' figure,
that 'walked' along the valley, 50 m away from them. The
humanoid object then rapidly became airborne and disappeared.
The encounter lasted 40 minutes. It was seen by 14 persons
including the six scientists.

Though Dr Kulkarni's report was comprehensive, it appears to
have been mysteriously ignored by the Indian government. A clue
as to just why can be found in the IT report; we note that
Kulkarni's description - in addition to its submission via
scientific channels - was also supplied to unnamed "intelligence
agencies ... the matter was buried soon after."

I think we all know what happened there. The excellent IT report
