Villagers Panic As Ice Falls From Sky
A large piece of ice is reported to have fallen from the sky in the Indian State of West Bengal on 27 January 2006. This is reported to have taken place at the Katnabil Village, resulting in a flutter in the area. The phenomenon has been dismissed as absurd by weather experts. The ice is reported to have melted down to weigh only 5 kilograms by the time a photographer arrived at the site.

The impact is reported to have created a crater which is about a foot deep, according to photographer Rana Ghosh. The police station in-charge Sudipta Banerjee said he had sent a probe team. Burdwan District council leader Uday Sarkar said he has called upon the local people to preserve a part of ice for testing purposes.
