A bizarre video of a “supernatural creature” walking on a bridge in India has gone viral, troubling those on social media about what they saw. In the 30-second clip, a figure can be seen walking across the bridge with a strange gait before suddenly stopping to stare at the people recording the video. It is difficult to look good due to the darkness and low quality of the footage, leading to speculation on social media that it may be a witch, ghost or space alien.
According to Heavy.com, fact-checkers investigated the origin of the video after it went viral. Times of India journalist Arvind Chauhan reported that the video “is of a poor woman, not a foreigner”. Fact-checking website Alt News also reported that the two youths who recorded the video were interviewed by a local news channel. One of the two witnesses, who identified himself as Deepak, told Alt News that the video was actually of a naked woman walking on NH 75 in Jharkhand’s Ichinda.
“We were returning from Chakradharpur to Seraikela after attending the last rites of a friend’s mother,” Deepak said. “We were scared when we first saw the woman and stopped at a shop near the highway. When some others reached the spot, we asked if they had also seen the woman. She was not a witch. She was a witch. was female and this was also confirmed by other passersby.”
The site states that Deepak and another witness claimed in a separate interview with Indian news channel Jan Doot News that they saw a woman who was “walking naked” to which they shouted, “Chudaal hai, girl hai. Record it, record it!” According to Alt News, which translates to, “Witch, witch! It’s a girl. Record it!”
Even though what is seen in the video is a human and not some sort of supernatural entity, some questions still remain. Namely, one has to wonder why a woman without clothes was walking on the road, oblivious to the danger of passing motorists? Where did she come from, and where was she going? is he okay? We’ll probably never get the full story, so the video will undoubtedly have a lot of people talking. Seraikela sub-inspector Mohammad Naushad told Alt News that the matter is “under investigation”.
It should come as no surprise to see the theory that the woman is an alien from outer space, presented by people watching the video. Discussion of UFOs has been in many headlines recently, including a new report that new NASA chief Bill Nelson plans to further study unidentified flying objects within his first month in office. This follows recent reports of high-speed UFO sightings in the sky by the US Navy.
“We don’t know if it’s extraterrestrial. We don’t know if it’s the enemy. We don’t know whether it’s an optical phenomenon,” Nelson told CNN. “We don’t think [it’s an optical phenomenon] Because of the characteristics that those Navy jet pilots described … and so the bottom line is that we want to know.”
Let’s just hope that the person featured in the viral video is fine, wherever he is now. We got this story from heavy.com.
