Btw one question. Will I find some more fragments of meteorites from where it was found? I will try to search more and more from that area.

It's very possible, if there's one there could be more!

Nice fusion crust on your meteorite Fireball.  It looks a lot like my Gold Basin meteorite.

So is this a meteorite? Iam asking this last time to really confirm. Hope you will say yes!🙏

I would say yes you have a meteorite and there could be more.

What general area was it found?  If you tell us then we can tell you if others have found any meteorites in that area also and if they have been previously named.

Use this to search your meteorite to see if it has a name.

After checking the website which you have recommended and some Google search,finally I think I might have found the official name of my meteorite. A sample of 1.3 kg of main mass of the meteorite has been collected 20km away from the place I live in same district.
