Suspicious Chinese object recovered from Arunachal , likely to be weather instrument

A suspicious object the size of a laptop was found in Arunachal Pradesh today.

The device recovered from the Arunachal Pradesh village in Kamle district appears to be an instrument which is used to measure atmospheric conditions.

The object, possibly a part of a Chinese weather balloon, somehow managed to get detached from it and landed in the village.

The object was found some 100 km from the border with China in Arunachal Pradesh, local police said.

According to a few reports, the local villagers found the object on a tree.

The object had markings in Mandarin and when the text was decoded, it was revealed that the equipment is a GZZ110 type digital sonde – a probe instrument that automatically transmits information about its surroundings underground, under water, in the atmosphere, etc.

The manufacturer has been identified as Shanghai-based Chang Wang Atmospheric Science and Technology.

China hasn’t commented on the apparent crash of the device.

In December, China accused India of “invading” its airspace when a drone lost control and crashed in the Sikkim section of the border.
