New Delhi: The security apparatus in the city was on its toes on Thursday after Special Task Force personnel informed the police that there was a UFO like object over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s 7, Lok Kalyan Marg residence. The PMO security immediately informed the airport security and the CISF about the so-called UFO.

The safety and seriousness of the incident aside, it was not something Twitterati would have let go. Anyone on social media would agree that this incident was a goldmine for jokes. That’s exactly what happened. INC India’s Twitter handle also jumped at the chance.

“Even aliens are looking for vikas,” it tweeted.Meanwhile, the search by security forces ended and the perimeter security officer gave an OK Report to the Delhi police.

A senior officer said no case has been registered and he refused to divulge more details about the matter. Delhi police chief spokesperson Dependra Pathak confirmed the sighting but refused to reveal details of the incident. “The sighting was reported but nothing threatening was found. More details cannot be shared keeping security reasons in mind,” Mr Pathak added.

DCP (New Delhi district) Madhur Verma said, “We have not registered any FIR. It could have been a drone, which is common. I cannot disclose more information.”

The incident, however, saw a series of funny Twitter reactions, with many finding it improbable.
