The head of the paramilitary security force responsible for guarding airports and government offices across India revealed that 62 UFO sightings have been reported at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport in New Delhi in the past four months since late October 2015. Are they arriving, departing or connecting to Mars?
Surender Singh has been Director General of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) since July 2015, so all of these unidentified flying object sightings have occurred on his watch. Responsible for security at over 300 industrial sites including such as atomic power plants, airports, space facilities, oil fields and refineries, major ports, hydroelectric/thermal power plants, the CISF employs over 165,000 people, making it the largest industrial security force in the world. Not to mention one of the biggest trackers of UFOs in the world as well, at least around the IGI Airport.
At a meeting celebrating the organization’s 47th Raising Day (anniversary), Singh revealed to reporters that at least 62 UFO incidents have occurred at the airport since October 27, 2015.
This is a general problem which is not only confined to the airport. There are other sensitive installations too (near the airport area). Soon guidelines will be out determining the responsibility of each agency in such cases.
Singh admitted that many of the sightings turned out to be balloons, kits, Chinese lanterns and laser pointers, but not all had been resolved and any incident could be escalated, as was the case in January when the Indian Air Force shot down a UFO that turned out to be a balloon. This is not an option at IGI, said Singh.
At the airport, there are various stakeholders and we cannot shoot down flying objects. This is a general problem which is not only at the airport. There are other sensitive installations too (near the airport area). Soon guidelines will be out determining the responsibility of each agency in such cases.
However, the airport can be put on high alert, as was the case in November 2015 after multiple sightings around the airport.
These instances are considerable...but we take them all very seriously. We assume them to be genuine and all the procedures are undertaken to check them.
Sixty-two UFO sightings in one location is more than “considerable” – it’s either a security epidemic or a sign that New Delhi may be more than just an airport for "airplanes." Which one it is will have to wait for Surender Singh’s next report.
