According to the legend, an ape-like creature, Yeti, is believed to roam in the Himalayan region, but there has never been any concrete evidence to prove their existence.

In a recent tweet, Indian Army claimed that one of its mountaineering teams has sighted the footprints of the Yeti, what we consider to be a mythical creature born out of folklore.

The Army tweeted that its Mountaineering Expedition Team found Yeti's footprints, measuring 32.15 inches, near the Makalu base camp in Nepal on 9th April, 2019.

Talking to NDTV, one of the army officials said that the claim was based on physical proofs including on-the-spot narration, photos and videos.

"We tweeted as we thought prudent to excite scientific temper and rekindle the interest. Some of us who reject the story surely shall have a definite answer to the evidences. As they say nature, history and science never write their final story"

Indian Army's tweet gained a lot of attention on social media.

Former BJP MP Tarun Vijay even said that the Army should not call it a beast.

As of now these evidences have been handed over to subject matter experts for further investigation.
