Video of 'Supernatural Creature' Walking on Bridge Leaves Viewers Puzzled

A video of a strange white figure walking on a bridge in eastern India has caused a stir on social media. Users have questioned the origins of the "supernatural creature," with some claiming it could be an alien or a ghost.

The "creature" was allegedly spotted Saturday walking at night on a bridge near the Chadwa Dam in the Hazaribagh district of the Indian state of Jharkhand.

Arvind Chauhan, a journalist at The Times of India, tweeted Saturday a video alongside the post: "Video of the alien or 'supernatural creature' spotted in Hazaribagh, Jharkhand."

Several passersby in the video reportedly commented on the figure calling it a witch, Gulf Today reported.

In the video, some vehicles were seen pausing near the "creature," while others drove past it. The figure appeared to briefly stop in its tracks at one point before it continued walking, according to the footage reportedly captured by locals.

In a tweet sharing the video, which has received at least 77,800 views, @Ashutos32363607 wrote: "The video has become talk of the town. People are assuming it to be an Alien and it actually could be, keenly observe the 13th second of the video, A red Lapros wing UFO flying with jangling sound. Place-Near Hazaribagh, Jharkhand,"

User @Only4Vikash tweeted: "A human like 'bizarre creature' spotted in Jharkhand's #Hazaribagh during crossing a bridge, a day earlier. Peoples nearby, are very nervous and too shocked that, was this a #Ghost, #Alien or anything else?"

Local authorities have yet to confirm the validity of the latest video and the origins of the white figure.

Newsweek has contacted India's Ministry of Home Affairs and the Indian Space Research Organization for comment.

Back in March, a 47-year-old motorcyclist claimed that the sudden appearance of an unidentified flying object is what caused him to fall off his motorcycle.

"I was traveling home on my motorbike at around 9 a.m. when I witnessed a strange light traveling in the sky," the man alleged.

"I tried to concentrate on riding, but what made me fall was the sound that followed after the light. I then fell off the bike due to panic. I thought I was dying," he said.

He also claimed to have seen the UFO itself. "The object looked like a rocket with fire on its back," he reported after the fact.

In late May, basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal claimed he saw a UFO above California over two decades ago.

O'Neal made the comments in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! during which the host discussed a 60 Minutes report looking into the issue of what the government calls "unidentified aerial phenomena" or UAPs.

The former basketball player said he had been on a double date with three other people one night in 1997 and the group were on their way home from Hollywood Video in Madera, California, when they witnessed a strange sighting.

"Right when we passed the fairground, I could swear I saw a flying saucer come down with all the lights and it was spinning... and then it took off," he said.

"Everything happened in less than five seconds, and we all looked at each other and was like... [looks shocked]

"I know that it was a UFO, I don't care what anybody says," O'Neal said.
