Ghost attacks in Khardah house, Kolkata, India

Dec 30, 2008

KOLKATA: Sukumar Das, the inspector-in-charge of Khardah police station, got the shock of his life when he picked up the phone on Monday afternoon. The agitated voice at the other end pleaded with the inspector to rush to his aid as soon as possible. Was it a thief? A local tough? A fraudster? No. Ratan Das, the caller, was complaining of ghost attacks in his house.

Das said strange things were happening in his house at Midland Place in the Rahara area over the past fortnight. Often, family members saw household items toppling out of shelves. "One day, the door of our refrigerator suddenly developed cracks and fell off. We also saw flower vases trembling and falling on the floor without anyone even getting near them," complained Das, a clerk at Barrackpore court.

If that was scary enough, worse things were reserved for the family. A few days ago, Das' daughter Rima, who will sit for Madhyamik next year, was reportedly pushed hard from behind and she fell on the floor. But there was no one standing behind her. "My books were also set on fire last week," said the frightened girl.

But the last straw was when the Dases noticed on Monday morning that a corner of the bed had caught fire and the almirah doors had swung open. All the clothes inside shirts, sarees and other garments had been cut up in different sizes. Das called up the police in a few hours.

"My family and I are under tremendous mental trauma. The ghostly happenings are posing a threat to our lives. My wife and daughter are so upset that they want to leave the house right now. Please come and help me," Das said.

The Khardah inspector went to the house with his team. News of the ghost attacks had spread like wildfire in the area and curious neighbours had gathered there to see what was going on.

Some local social activists, who heard of the incident, also arrived at the house to find out what was happening. They found the house in a mess, with the mattress on the bed half-burnt.

Police suspect that some neighbours may be behind the mischief. "We are trying to give the family moral support and probing who is causing trouble," said an officer.

Let's find the truth
by: Jeab

I think mental situations and in some cases people with a harmful intention cause those typical, so-called eerie incidents. I don't know the present condition of the house, but if all yet remain the same, then I suggest a thorough investigation throughout that place and its surroundings, and also want to see the members of the family free from their spectre-phobia. Because sometimes an illogical fear plays the persistent role of a ghost itself. So please light the fire of truth and wipe the darkness thickened by the ghostly fire. :)

My suggestion to the family members of the victim is to use the holy water of River Ganga with fresh salt and to spread the said mixed water in the entire house in the name of goddess Kali Maa and also to arrange for Pret Yogya with a help of a Live Chicken (country made) to dedicate the hosts for maintaining peace in the house. If this spell did work my advice is to leave the house at once to save his family members.

We can only fight with the ghost but can not kill them as they are already dead. They are more powerful than us. Never tried to underestimate the ghosts. I have also such past experience of ghosts existence in my rented house for which my family divided in two parts and I lost my parents presence in my house till now.

Believe it
by: Parmeshwar Das

May be some so called educated people do not believe it, which does not make any difference to those Ghosts.

In my opinion is it is a matter of experience not a matter of argument.
