Posted on 03/31/2011 4:04:09 PM PDT by SoftwareEngineer
Chandigarh, March 31 In a startling development an unidentified flying object said to be carrying aliens crash landed near Zirakpur in the early hours of Friday morning. Estimated to be the size of five cargo ships, this elliptical object that emitted an intense white light encircled the fields before it went down with a thud. No one is believed to have been killed or injured and the area has been cordoned off by a large contingent of the Punjab police that has been rushed to the site.
Right after the crash, radio signals were severely disrupted with cellphones going off the air for several minutes. Experts from the department of space and the Atomic Energy Commission, sleuths from the Research & Analysis Wing (RAW) and crack commandos of the armys special forces are believed to be on their way to the site.
Top government officials said the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA), the US space agency, had been informed and senior scientists were expected to arrive at the scene soon.
The Bureau of Paranormal Research & Extra Terrestrial Activities in Denver, Colorado immediately released reports of some alien spacecraft signals being detected in the area of the Indian subcontinent. A bureau team is expected to arrive in the city in a special jet on Thursday.

“It is already tomorrow in India.”
Probably temporal displacement caused by UFO.
And so it begins. ;-)
Is tomorrow too late to get committed to a rubber room?
Already 1 April — April Fools
First they say its the size of five cargo ships then ...
Noted scientist Yash Pal(real person) said the UFO could probably be a reconnaissance ship and that there could be more such UFOs on the way. “The size of the ship that crashed in Punjab is small. It means it’s an offshoot vehicle. The mother ship could be nearby,” he warned.
The size of five cargo ships and it only crashes with a ‘Thud’ sound?
Always in some far-off, isolated place, usually with very superstitious inhabitants.
How could someone write a news story like that without there being any pics taken??
Anyone snap a photo?
Yes, it’s April Fool’s Day in India.
This is the picture on the main page of the site
Is this for real? I looked for any signs of satire, humor, etc., but couldn’t find any. Is this publication valid?
Was it a — wait for it — "dull thud"??
Isn’t that a line from LOTR? Second movie?
Doh! April Fools.
and it’s always a farmer in the field with his son!
"Teasers are usually rich kids with nothing to do. They cruise around looking for planets which haven't made interstellar contact yet and buzz them."
"Buzz them?" Arthur began to feel that Ford was enjoying making life difficult for him.
"Yeah", said Ford, "they buzz them. They find some isolated spot with very few people around, then land right by some poor soul whom no one's ever going to believe and then strut up and down in front of him wearing silly antennae on their heads and making beep beep noises. Rather childish really."
The newspaper (Tribune) is India’s most respected English daily and has been publishing for over a 100 years.
However, India being British.. has a weird sense of humor. A normally dry and very high end newspaper like The Tribune will think nothing about publishing a “stunt” article for April 1
...at least that is what I think this is... could be real..and then the jokes on me..
Right. I thought 4/1 was an American tradition - looks like those pesky Indians have learned to play along
If it was April 1st here I wouldn’t have half way fallen for it. That International Dateline will get you everytime!
Are they sure it wasn’t a Russian spacecraft?
Punjab Rodeo Ping!!!
Breaking news from the Tribune: The aliens have gotten their visas and will be opening motels and gas stations in the southern United States.
The Indians got the best pictures.
Must be all the computer geeks over there answering the ‘Help Line’. So technologically savy!
There is bound to be a percentage of people who will belive this. I say 0.03%
Dang! I thought it was a joke until I saw that picture!
"Alien" rescue force spotted approaching crash site!
Wow!!!! This is a series matter. It’s an invasion!!!! The aliens may be trying to wage a ‘No Fly Zone’ against us!
Please keep us up to date with information as it happens on the ground!
I may not have a connection much longer.
Will check it out.
My relative insisted we had crash teams that could go
instantaneously to any spot on the globe to clean up such crashes.
Craft that large very very very rarely crash, even in a controlled forced landing.
Interesting that it’s purportedly happened at this time.
Will be interesting to see what thranspires therefrom.
These aliens should develop a more stringent quality control system.
This is really surprising since our local newspaper did not report that Dennis Kucinich was traveling to India.
OH MY GOD!!!
When those things start showing up, the situation always turns for the worst! Get out of there, and save yourself!
I should keep track of April 1st better. LOL.
