behalf of larger Indian GRB collaboration)

GRB 081128, localized by Swift (Margutti et al. GCN 8571), was observed
with 1.04m telescope at NainiTal starting ~ 2.5 hours after the burst
in R_c filter.

Photometry of the co-added R_c frames (300 sec x 5) does not detect the
optical afterglow candidate (Wang et al. GCN 8572) down to a limiting
magnitude of ~ 20 mag in comparison to nearby USNO stars.
