Analysis of the News:
Some of the possible reasons for sudden fall of such type of ice from sky (Without rain) could be a peculiar weather related phenomenon known as “Megacrymeteor”, or it could be due to fall of frozen ice from the leakage from the defective toilet lines.
1. Approximate Geographical Coordinates of the incident site are 26°38’05″N, 77°13’49″E
2. Site of incident lies exactly below the Air Traffic Services Route W-20N (Bangalore/ Hyderabad/ Chennai to Delhi) at an areal distance of 215 Kilometers from Delhi. This is the place around which the aircraft coming from South side commence descent.
3. It is possible that the ice piece might have fallen while the aircraft was descending from low temperature atmospheric region to higher temperature region..
