Sources said a meeting of the boundary coordination mechanism - a highlevel official mechanism set up by the two sides to ensure that the boundary incidents between their armed forces do not escalate - is being scheduled later this month where the issue of "luminous objects" will be at the centre of the discussion

...Is it safe to assume Chinese lanterns have been ruled out? I'm leaning towards yes.
Interesting to note, there are scientists making these observations and not just the military.
A five-member group of geologists and glaciologists led by Dr Anil Kulkarni of the isro's Space Applications Centre in Ahmedabad were on a research trip through the barren Samudra Tapu Valley. They filmed a four-foot tall 'robot-like' figure, that 'walked' along the valley, 50 m away from them. The humanoid object then rapidly became airborne and disappeared. The encounter lasted 40 minutes. It was seen by 14 persons including the six scientists.

It's a well known fact that military grade 'hi-tech' is so much more advanced than ours is. We've only had the internet for just over 20 years, colour tv's and such too..... These people are probably watching robotic nanoids act out their fave' plays! This could easily be sci-tech. Shoot one down I say, they know the risks..
Sometimes I wonder if the military really does have all this advanced tech we hear about, they seem awfully reluctant to use it in any war scenario, maybe they'd sooner the world burn than reveal their secret, who knows. It would be interesting to find out though. SHOOT IT DOWWWWWWN!
