Mangaluru, December 9: After some people in Boliyar reportedly spotted a ‘alien’, people in the locality are living in a state of anxiety.
The locals said, the ‘alien’ is of the size of a child bearing human face and speaks a strange language. As the people who have seen it said that it is neither an animal nor a human being, the villagers have began to believe that it is an ‘alien’.
The local residents have been spending sleepless nights since last Saturday. The place has a temple and a Sri Rama Bhajan Mandir nearby. Just behind that exists a thick forest and in front an agricultural field of 3 acres. Most of the houses are located in between.
It is learnt, on Saturday night, Vasanthi, wife of Purushotham who stays near the Mandir, was on her way back home after the Bhajans. Meanwhile, she heard some noise emerging from among the bushes beside the road. She thought it was a domestic animal, but Vasanthi was shocked to see the ‘alien’-like creature following her. She says that the creature had the body of a child with human face and its voice resembled a human’s voice, but it spoke an unknown language. The ‘alien’ suddenly vanished from the spot when Vasanthi was panicking. Vasanthi ran home out of fear. Her family said it could have been a wild animal.
On Sunday night, person named Iqbal who lives near the field heard a feeble voice. When he came out, he saw the ‘alien’, which ran on its two legs like a human being to the temple area. By the time people gathered after Iqbal cried for help, the ‘alien’ had reached the forest. The search for it was in vain.
After Vasanthi and Iqbal spotted the ‘alien’, it has not been seen again. Some youths have been keeping vigil at night to catch the ‘alien’. People say as torch lights are used to locate the ‘alien’, it has stopped coming to the village and must be hiding in the forest.
There are no street lights in the village and people hardly move out after dark. The thick forest close by has made the search a cumbersome task. The media crew which went in search of the ‘alien’ on Tuesday December 8th night returned after half an hour of failed attempt to go into the forest.
