Panic gripped Modhupatti village near Oddanchatram on Wednesday as a mysterious, cylindrical object fell from the sky.
According to eye witnesses, the black object fell from the sky with smoke and flame. It fell on the farm owned by one Velusamy. Those working in nearby fields ran for safety.
On information, Kallimandhayam police, fire and rescue services personnel and revenue officials rushed to the spot and cordoned off the area.
Assistant Director of Forensic Science Department (Madurai) Baskaran, along with a team from Dindigul, who analysed the object, said it could be a part of an air-conditioner used in jet planes. It was not harmful, he added. Later, the object was removed from the spot.
