In a series of suspicious flying objects being spotted near airports in the country, a suspicious balloon has been reported in the sky near Delhi airport.

India Today reported that the balloon was seen moving from Gurgaon to Delhi’s Aaya Nagar air force station, and the Delhi Air Traffic Control and Delhi police were informed. 

Earlier on Wednesday, two flights from Delhi to Kathmandu were delayed, after a call that warned of bombs on the planes.

This sighting comes after reports of an IAF jet accidentally dropping bombs near Barmer in Rajasthan, an incident which was later revealed to be a bid to intercept a suspicious balloon in the sky.
