In a shocking incident, two women sustained severe burns after mysterious flying objects from Sky hit them on Thursday in Patola village of Himachal Pradesh.
The incident, reported to be the first-of-its-kind in the area, occurred near the Chamunda Devi shrine in Palampur at 9.30 am. The injured, Sarita and Anita, were rushed to a nearby Hospital after the hot substances fell over them causing burns on their bodies.
The eyewitness and the residents of the area said that two objects which were approximately 12 inches in size resembled fire balls.
They went on saying that the mysterious objects fell from sky and shattered into several pieces as soon as they hit the ground.
Soon after the incident took place, rumours were rife that the area was hit by a meteorite connecting the incident to the meteorite blast above the Urals mountain region in Central Russia which left over 1000 people injured and caused shock wave smashing windows and damaging buildings of the area on 15 February.
A team of forensic experts from the Regional Forensic Science Laboratory (RFSL), Dharamsala, arrived at the location who ruled out the chances of meteorite strike.
The primary investigation by the forensic team revealed that the object could be rocket fuel or a part of the rocket, reported IndiaTV.
The samples of the mysterious object have been sent for further analysis to the State Forensic Science Laboratory at Junga in Shimla.
As per reports, except the two women, no other causalities or damages were reported.
