Be vigilant about unidentified objects

14 December 2012 07:21 am - 39     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Medical Research Institute has requested people who believe they have spotted an unidentified flying object to search their surroundings for any kind of material evidence like pieces of metal or rock, which they think would have fallen off the UFO.

“We are not interested in visuals so make sure to lookout for objects like metal or rock”, a Medical Research Institute spokesman said.
He said the people could contact the Institute on No: 0112-2693532

There has been a huge uproar in the country about unidentified objects after several instances were reported from different parts of the country where people have claimed to have spotted such objects in the sky.(Ajith Siriwardana)

    This is the "Red Herring" introduced to the people, like the gold rush on Kelani River, to cover the price hike of Petrol. "Some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time, all the people all the time?"

    There will be many more Objects as long as Govt is under pressure with Impeachment scenario

    Can we send Dr.Vermin and his henchmen to Mars to catch these Aliens and tie them to trees(gas bandinna) for entering Sri Lankan airspace without his permission?

    yasith Saturday, 15 December 2012 12:14 AM

    Can we send Dr.Mervin to Mars to find out which aliens entered Sri Lankan air space without his permission and ask him to tie those Aliens to the tress and punish them?

    Minister Saturday, 15 December 2012 06:50 AM

    People, please continue to look at the heavens for flying saucers, and here CPC has pickpocketed you with the increase of fuel.

    AJ-DXB Saturday, 15 December 2012 06:55 AM

    another grease yaka?

    Jaya Saturday, 15 December 2012 04:57 PM

    Probably this may be an another media show by the Director MRI.
    Its very pathetic ,the Ministry of Health is misleading the General Public. This is not second to the Phone- house dust mite case and I got to know about the "Phone Clinic" conducted by the MRI some time back.
    Really silly and down grading the image of the Medical services in Sri Lanka.

    chin Saturday, 15 December 2012 05:38 PM

    Kids at MRI have not heard about radiation

    Muwa Saturday, 15 December 2012 07:22 PM

    I saw the moon...

    Nihal Sunday, 16 December 2012 12:23 PM

    Hope,LTTE has not found another flying object to roam the sky above Sri Lanka.

    Gamaralala Friday, 14 December 2012 08:17 AM

    HK Friday, 14 December 2012 07:33 AM

    There are so many object in Srilanka already...

    mamath Friday, 14 December 2012 07:46 AM

    MRI should investigate the brains of these people who have "sighted" UFOs and not the rocks or other objects "fallen" from UFOs.

    rif Friday, 14 December 2012 12:00 AM

    Any object found is precious

    Tevin Friday, 14 December 2012 07:59 AM

    May be the pieces of satellite that was launched recently - made in china.

    jc Friday, 14 December 2012 12:00 AM

    mother land is becoming the most happening place. earthquakes ufos metal falling off the sky, what's next? via DM Android App

    Jaya Friday, 14 December 2012 08:01 AM

    UFO?Grab them and bring them to Medical Institute. yeah right!!!
    Most likely to be parts of meteorites shower. Kind advice to all. Don't even think about touching them. It will be very hot , hotter than coal in the fire because of burning in the atmosphere. Also there is a chance of it being radio active. Please publish

    Yohan Perera Friday, 14 December 2012 08:07 AM

    Joke of the day. UFOs are a thing of the past...

    Roshan Friday, 14 December 2012 08:03 AM

    Most probably the Aliens are trying to kidnap our PSC members to impeach their CJ.

    mamath Friday, 14 December 2012 08:12 AM

    If these aliens expose..fine is only Rs 10 ..ha ha

    Hardball Friday, 14 December 2012 07:29 AM

    Anushka Friday, 14 December 2012 09:41 AM

    This is just a tactic to deviate the wistle blowers against the government.

    Dogcs Friday, 14 December 2012 11:18 AM

    Hmmm.... medical research institute on alleged falling metal. Let alone this UFO saga lately, is this is the right institute to ask such kind of evidence?????

    dayt0na Friday, 14 December 2012 11:31 AM

    What do you mean?

    Sonali De Silva Friday, 14 December 2012 11:44 AM

    Maybe they are expecting them to drop Christmas presents. Who wants visual evidence. Our people are happy even if its rocks and metals as long as they are free.

    N. Bandara Friday, 14 December 2012 12:20 PM

    What has metals got to do with medicine?? Is the MRI trying to find a new cure a disease???

    Nodrog Friday, 14 December 2012 12:25 PM

    Lobo Friday, 14 December 2012 12:26 PM

    Alibaba Friday, 14 December 2012 12:27 PM
