Residents of Village near ITR , Chandipur off the coast of Odisha were startled over the weekend by the sight of a seemingly controlled object flying over their heads, particularly in crowded residential areas. This mystery sighting coincides with the Indian Air Force’s test-firing of the Akash NG, a short-range missile system, conducted by the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur around 11 pm on Saturday.

Local media outlet Otv Khabar captured footage of the object, sparking heated debate among defense analysts and the public. While some experts believe it could be a Banshee target drone used as a practice target for the Akash NG, others speculate it might be a Akash NG missile chasing a target at a lower altitude, making it visible from a wider range.

Adding to the confusion, the Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), responsible for the Akash NG program, has yet to issue an official statement addressing the mystery object. This silence has fueled speculation and anxiety among residents who witnessed the unidentified flying object.

The mystery surrounding the unidentified object over Odisha highlights the importance of clear communication and transparency in military operations, especially when they involve activities near civilian populations. As authorities await more information and investigate the matter, focusing on ensuring public safety and providing timely updates remains paramount.
