Mystery of drone at IGI airport remains unsolved

Off 32

According to a senior Delhi Police official, so far cops have been able to conclude that the object was flying almost at a level of 1,500-1,900 metres above the ground.
“We are trying to gather information and we have questioned various government officials and staff members regarding the case. We have got information, but so far, nothing substantial has been offered by any agency that might help solve the mystery,” a senior Delhi Police official associated with the investigation told Mail Today.
During investigation it was found that radars hold no recordings of the incident. Not even one picture could be captured by the IAF radars.
“We have also roped in the local police to inquire if anyone noticed anything suspicious regarding the object, but have found nothing so far. The investigation has hit a dead end,” police official added.
On October 27, Indian agencies went into a tizzy after the ATC flashed a message about a mysterious ‘unknown flying object’ hovering over the IGI airport and suspected that it could be a drone. The agency had received information about the suspicious flying object over the Dwarka side of the IGI airport.
