In an another equally bizarre incident of air operation, an IAF radar tracked an unidentified balloon-shaped object floating over the district, not very far away from Pakistani border in Rajasthan's Barmer, prompting the IAF to send a fighter jet to intercept it and bring down the unidentified object, The Indian Express reports.
It is unknown whether both incidents are related.
