Meet India’s UFO Hunters
In January 2017, the CIA declassified and shared 930,000 documents on its website. One of these included a document from 1968 detailing six UFO sightings in India, Nepal, and Bhutan. Indian UFO sightings thereafter have been sporadic compared to countries like the US and Russia.

What are the strangest cases they’ve encountered, and how has their search impacted other areas of their lives? These are their stories.
