Indian jet shoots down UFO over Rajasthan

The incident, which occurred yesterday morning, is already being referred to as 'India's Roswell'.
According to the Indian Air Force, the object, which was described as "suspicious", was intercepted by a fighter jet after showing up on radar over the Barmer district near the border with Pakistan.

The area was later investigated by local law enforcement agencies who recovered a selection of cone-shaped objects from the crash site and sent them to Air Force officials for analysis.

"Between 10.30 and 11 am today (Tuesday, January 26, 2016) an unidentified balloon-shaped object was picked up by the Indian Air Force (IAF) radar," said a spokesman.

"An IAF fighter was launched, which intercepted the object and brought it down. Materials have been retrieved and further investigation is ongoing."

To further add to the mystery, local residents had reported hearing a total of five explosions at the time the UFO was shot down - some powerful enough to cause cracks to appear in buildings.

Since appearing online the story has been generating a great deal of interest with some Internet users speculating that the object could have been some sort of spy plane.

Many have also drawn parallels between this and the infamous 1947 Roswell UFO crash.

Whatever the object was it seems unlikely to have been a weather balloon.

I like to look at the sky at night. Once I looked up and saw a black disc floating above me, I was shocked, It turned out to be a balloon. So, it was just a balloon.

They recovered a balloon-shaped object but it is not likely a balloon? Neat.

Next question, how do you shoot down an UFO that has interplanetary capabilities? Surely those green probing beings can defend against our weapons

Surely those green probing beings can defend against our weapons Harte I should state the obvious again in detail, but instead I'll just leave one sentence: Just because "aliens" have "interplanetary capabilities" does not mean they will always have a military advantage. Transportation science =/= military science.
