Shit happens: Meteor that caused panic turned out to be human waste
There was a great amount of comedy when several people gathered at a village to find out if a meteor had fallen. After a thorough investigation it turned that the fallen object was not a meteor but human waste discarded mid air by a passing air craft.
The incident took place at Gurgaon's Fazilpur Badli village on Saturday. As the human waste landed in a field several residents rushed to the spot and claimed that it came shooting from the sky. A team of scientists rushed to the spot and confirmed that it was human waste.
It may be recalled that the National Green Tribunal had ordered the Directorate General of Civil Aviation to issue circulars to all airlines reiterating its December 20, 2016, order. The order had emphasised that airlines will have to pay a fine of Rs 50,000 if they discard human waste or empty their toilet tanks mid-air.
