You see, the original source is - hold your breath - India Daily!!
Now I got hold of this 'news', I think sometime way back in 2005, from the same article in this daily. I wrote to the editor several times asking him to identify that so called staff reporter and the credibility of this info. But I received no reply.
You see, I have operated there in Leh and Ladakh for quite some time conducting spec ops and so know the area pretty well. There's absolutely nothing out of the ordinary, I assure you. Or we would've known if there was something fishy going on.
Yes there were a few coloured balloons that blew across from the Chinese side, but these were just the meteorological types.
India’s Special Forces and intelligence agencies visit the area... www.ufodigest.com...
Yeah right! And we didn't find hair nor hide of those so called lights (UFOs). So all this is a load of pure unadulterated bullsh!t!
Relax, Aryan! There's nothing to really get excited about!

Unless there is verification from another source one should treat the story with great caution

If there are ufos, the military will not tell. the only reliable sources can be first hand witnesses and documentation.
what do you mean you have been there as spec ops? really?
maybe you want to tell about a little about that.
General Haushofer, a follower of Gurdjieff and later one of Hitler's main patrons, founded one such society. Its aim was to explore the origins of the Aryan race, and Haushofer named it the Vril Society, after Lytton's fictional creation. Its members practiced meditation to awaken the powers of Vril, the feminine cosmic energy. The Vril Society claimed to have links to Tibetan masters, apparently drawing on the ideas of Madame Blavatsky, the Theosophist who claimed to be in telepathic contact with spiritual masters in Tibet. In Germany, this blend of ancient myths and nineteenth-century scientific theories began to evolve into a belief that the Germans were the purest manifestation of the inherently superior Aryan race, whose destiny was to rule the world. These ideas were given scientific weight by ill-founded theories of eugenics and racist ethnography. Around 1919, the Vril Society gave way to the Thule Society (Thule Gesellschaft), which was founded in Munich by Baron Rudolf von Sebottendorf, a follower of Blavatsky. The Thule Society drew on the traditions of various orders such as the Jesuits, the Knights Templar, the Order of the Golden Dawn, and the Sufis. It promoted the myth of Thule, a legendary island in the frozen northlands that had been the home of a master race, the original Aryans. As in the legend of Atlantis (with which it is sometimes identified, the inhabitants of Thule were forced to flee from some catastrophe that destroyed their world. But the survivors had retained their magical powers and were hidden from the world, perhaps in secret tunnels in Tibet, where they might be contacted and subsequently bestow their powers on their Aryan descendants.

I will re-post my questions because I really think they need some answering in this thread. I wont be satisfied with the usual pro and con responses.
1. Is it true that tourists and inhabitants dont have access to the area because it is a military zone or a disputed zone?
2. Is it true that residing lamas confirm "strange lights" and UFO-sightings? (This might be true, type in "kongka la" at youtube and you will find a tourist to the ladakh region confirming this)
3. Have Chinese and Indian Ufology publications and researchers (other than india daily) ever mentioned or written about this? - This could be answered by the thread-poster from india.
4. Why have american websites such as Ufoarea and Ufodigest taken over the story?
5. Is India not one of the few governments that publicly acknowledges the existence of UFOs?
