A number of unusual cave paintings dating back 10,000 years have been discovered in Chhattisgarh.
The rock paintings, which were found on the walls of caves underneath the villages of Chandeli and Gotitola in India, appear to depict strange figures wearing spacesuits and objects in the sky that resemble traditional depictions of UFOs in modern culture.
According to the local villagers there are legends in the region about the "rohela people", small beings who came down from the heavens in round ships and took people away.
"The findings suggest that humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets which still create curiosity among people and researchers," said archaeologist JR Bhagat.
"Extensive research is needed for further findings. Chhattisgarh presently doesn't have any such expert who could give clarity on the subject."
