  • He also asked if the government would need help from actor Will Smith
  • The RTI received an answer, just not the one Mr Kumar was hoping for
One too many episodes of Walking Dead, too much time on hand, a desperate need for a good joke or just a weird desire to know - we're not sure what exactly brought this on but a Mumbai resident filed an actual Right to Information or RTI application to check the Indian government's preparedness in the case of a zombie apocalypse and/or alien invasion.

The RTI, filed earlier this year on March 15, made its way online in June but only recently went viral on social media.

In his application, Mumbai resident Ajay Kumar said: "I am concerned about the readiness of our Government in the event of an invasion by Aliens Zombies and Extra Dimensional Beings."

He also asked if the government would be able to defeat or dispose of the entities without the help of Hollywood actor Will Smith.

Abhimanyu Ghoshal, a Bengaluru-based reporter, tweeted a copy of the RTI:  
Since September 20, the RTI has received 960 retweets and almost 600 'likes.'

The RTI received an answer, just not the one Mr Kumar was hoping for.
 
Yep, no answer on whether Will Smith has been recruited to deal with this 'hypothetical situation.' Could this have been the real reason behind the Men In Black actor's visit to Mumbai last month?

No one knows what's really going to happen but we suggest Mr Kumar make his peace with this Twitter user's comment on the matter.
