RANCHI: A video from Jharkhand that has gone viral online appears to show a weird creature wandering down a road at night which some think is an alien.
The video was first shared on social media a few days ago and has since gone viral.
A lot of viewers have hypothesised that the footage depicts an alien or other unusual species.
However these are unfounded claims that only gained traction when the video was picked up by various news agencies and even made international news.
The figure was described as a “strange humanoid” by UK news website Ladbible, while Ekta Kapoor shared the footage on Instagram and described it as “scary.”
While the image of a lanky figure going down a dark road alone is obviously unusual, the footage contains nothing supernatural or otherworldly.
The two men who filmed the footage were interviewed by Jan Doot News, a local news channel and they confirmed that the figure is a woman strolling naked at night.
One of the men, Deepak said he and a companion were returning back to Seraikela when they saw the weird woman roaming around naked. They were initially startled by the sight and continued on their route but they returned a short time later to video tape the woman.
“It was a naked lady walking along the street. I have the whole video of one and a half minutes,” Deepak said in Hindi, referring to the 30-second clip that has been circulating online.
