Indian GRB collaboration

Optical afterglow candidate (GCN 6304) of GRB 070419A, localized by SWIFT
(GCN 6302, trigger 276205), was monitored from ARIES Nainital, India
using 1-m telescope in R_c and I_c filters around 4 hours after the burst.
The total exposure given in R_c filter was 300sec*6 in good sky conditions.
Photometry of the stacked R_c frame poses an upper limit of ~22 mag (around 4.3
hours after the burst) at the location of OT in comparison to nearby
USNO-B1.0 star (GCN 6306).
