This is an authentic piece of news, because it was published in hundreds of newspapers around the world and was even broadcasted on the local radio station.
So here is the story. Around the end of July 2002, villagers started to see strange flying objects swarming the sky. Two kinds of UFOs were reported: One was a disc shaped or a ball like object with flashing lights which moved rapidly. The other was an insect shaped craft that was much larger and moved extremely slowly. While the smaller UFO was seen only around Lucknow area, the bug shaped craft was so large that people who lived 50 miles from Lucknow could see it directly above them.
UFO experts say that the large cricket shaped craft was possibly the mothership, while the smaller disc shaped UFOs were deployed from it.
After a few days of inactivity, things escalated and the UFOs started attacking people. 7 people died, and many of them suffered burn injuries, so the UFOs earned the nickname Muhnochwa which means face burner. Doctors confirmed that these injuries were electrical burns caused by electricity passing through the body. For example, Ramji Pal, a middle-aged man was attacked with a laser like beam and his stomach was ripped open. He died 2 days later. A similar attack on a 53 year old woman resulted in blackened forearms. Another alarming fact is that within a period of one week, more than 20 people went missing within a radius of 10 miles, never to be seen again.
Remember, this was not just a simple rumor that went around quietly among the villagers. It was so serious that 10,000 people gathered in front of the police station demanding action against these attacking aliens. Predictably, the police completely brushed off the possibility of extraterrestrials and dispersed the crowd.
Is this solid proof that alien UFOs attacked these villagers? So far, we have seen multiple eyewitness accounts and people with bodily injuries. But authorities refused to accept these as concrete evidences of extraterrestrial attack until actual video footage emerged showing these UFOs. And these UFOs were captured on film not just once, but on 6 different cameras.
Were these footages, created by pranksters? No, the first person to catch an alien craft on camera was in fact a district judge. He is the only person who captured the large insect shaped UFO hovering over a field.
4 days later the smaller disc shaped UFOs were captured on 5 different cameras confirming that these were in fact flying objects that moved over villages during night time.
While the affected villagers created their own protection squad that roamed around the village after dark to prevent future alien attacks, these quote on quote “educated Government officials” were trying to come up with alternate theories.
