Chilling footage of the so-called Jharkhand alien has been shared thousands of times on Twitter. The video emerged after a group of motorcyclists appeared to film a mysterious figure walking down a poorly lit road in Jharkhand, a state in eastern India. At first glance, UFO enthusiasts have claimed, the tall and slender figure appears to resemble a character straight out of an X-file episode.
The viral video clip shows the figure emerge from the dark, illuminated by the front lights of the group’s motorcycles.
The bikers seem to approach the figure with some degree of trepidation and they can be heard talking to one another.
At one point towards the end of the brief clip, the figure turns around and looks at the group before continuing down the road and into the darkness.
The video has sparked a number of bizarre theories, with some claiming it was a ghost and others suggesting it was an alien visitor.
One Twitter user said: “The video has become the talk of the town.
“People are assuming it to be an alien ait actually could be, keenly observe the 13th second of the video.
“A red lapros wing UFO flying with jangling sound. Place – near Hazaribagh, Jharkhand.”
The person even tagged NASA in the tweet in a bid to share the video far and wide.
Scott Waring, a popular UFO hunter and conspiracy theorist has weighed in on the bizarre clip, unsurprisingly claiming the figure is an alien.
He analysed the footage on his UFO blog, UFOSightingsDaily.com, where he frequently posts questionable pictures and videos of UFO reports from around the globe.
He said of the “Jharkhand alien”: “A strange figure was seen…resembling an alien or ghostly figure was recorded along a road in India this week.
“Motorists were riding past when one motorcyclist with a helm cam recorded a strange figure walking carelessly along the road.
“The figure looks human enough, however, its arms are 20 percent longer than humans.
“The whitish figure looks to be wearing a skin-tight outfit or they are nude.”
Mr Waring went on to claim aliens have finally taken a step towards revealing themselves to us – but he fears the bikers squandered the opportunity.
He added: “Aliens are getting closer and closer, my advice when you see one, stop and chat with it.
“Perhaps it wanted to give the cure to Covid to someone but no-one would approach it.
“Perhaps it wanted to give them the secrets to immortality, and yet, no one cared enough to approach it and greet the alien.
“Perhaps it wanted to give them the secrets to immortality, and yet, no one cared enough to approach it and greet the alien. This is the world we live in.”
Could there be a much simpler explanation for the “Jharkhand alien”?
According to some of the internet’s best sleuths, the answer is yes.
Scott Brando, a popular hoax buster who runs the Twitter account and website ufoofinterest.org, the “strange figure” was a naked woman walking down the road all on her own.
He tweeted: “Contrary to what I thought, the video of the alleged alien walking on a road at night was not a hoax, it was not staged. The ‘alien’ was a woman walking naked.”
One of the men who appeared in the viral video has also spoken out about the encounter, telling the local press in India it was indeed a naked woman.
Deepak, who was riding back home to Seraikela with his friends, was quoted in NDTV.com saying in Hindi: “It was a lady walking down the road without clothes…
“The clip circulating online is 30-second long, I have the full video of one and a half minutes.”
The man further revealed the video was filmed on April 27 this year and local authorities are investigating the incident.
Deepak added: “We got scared when we first saw the woman and stopped at a shop near the highway. When a few others reached the spot, we asked if they too saw the woman.
“She was not a witch. She was a woman and this was also confirmed by other passers-by.”
