- NEPALGUNJ -- The life in
the Nepal-India border at Belaspur and Nepalgunj went panicky for the second
consecutive day on Saturday when an unidentified object again attempted
to kill a woman.
- The same mysterious object had killed a 40-year-old woman
in the neighbouring Indian village a few days ago. Sahim Khan, 55, of Belaspur-16
was sleeping peacefully on the terrace of her house when the fireball-like
object flew towards her ready to attack her, say locals.
- "When we rushed towards Khan's house after seeing
the object, it disappeared instantly," they said. The locals then
brought Khan from the terrace and kept her safely inside the house. The
locals said they saw the same object the previous day over Nepalgunj Municipality
and Guleria area.
- Even the object continues to attack villagers for the
last couple of days and more and more people are attacked, authorities
from both Nepal and India have failed to identify the object, which is
said to be active at night and disappears instantly after the attack.
- The local eyewitnesses said it resembles a fire-flame
and attacks those sleeping outside their houses on rooftops and terraces.
Deputy Superintendent of Police, Gokarna Bahadur Pal of Banke admitted
that he saw the red object but said he could not identify it.
- India's Lucknow-based newspapers even published reports
that said three people have been killed and more than a dozen wounded across
the border after the mysterious object was detected in the region a couple
of days ago.
