Rupak Roy, K. Misra, and S. B. Pandey (ARIES, NainiTal, India, on behalf 
of larger Indian GRB collaboration)

We have imaged the field of Swift GRB 071010 (Moretti et al. GCN6859) 
with the 1.04m telescope at NainiTal ~ 0.5 days after the burst. 
Observations were performed in R and I bands in poor sky conditions.

We observed the afterglow candidate in R and I bands reported by Klotz, 
A. et al. (GCN 6860). Magnitude of the OT is R ~ 20 in comparison to 
nearby USNO B1.0 stars.
