Then, faced with a ghost chief constable. He told me that one day on duty someone pushed him. Turning around, he saw a policeman, wearing a white shirt and a national dhoti loincloth. When law enforcement officers rebelled rudeness, the man disappeared.
These stories spread quickly among the local population, and the number of witnesses of unusual phenomena in the building of the High Court was growing rapidly. And then Deputy Commissioner of Police of the Indian state of Karnataka Kumar Swami personally went to court on night duty.
According to the publication Mail Today, Swami would thus refute rumors of paranormal phenomena, because of which the police flatly refused to patrol the building at night.

"I've been everywhere, where our constables told not to go. They are afraid of ghosts that supposedly lives in this place. I sat there all alone 15 minutes, and kept hoping that the ghost will come and talk to me, but it do not come, "- said Kumar Swami.
This, incidentally, is not the first time that India covers real "ghost" fever. A few years ago on the same Bangalore rumors of a female ghost who came in the night and kill children.

Somewhat earlier, the villagers Kapuravala about Jaipur banned their daughters to attend public high school for girls after the terrible rumors have spread about the unknown demon, who had found shelter in the school toilet.
Eyewitnesses told of incredible events that infantrymen entered there three students after the meeting with the ghost began to suffer from epilepsy.

Teachers also denied the rumors as they could, until one of them is "dressing demon" not beaten to such an extent that it had to be sent to the hospital.
Only after that the school administration has invited the shaman, who was at the building a special ceremony — a ceremony purging fire. The girls went back to school, only when convinced that the devil finally banished …
The penalty for a ghost

Villagers Dolbear long suspected that the house Sibon Soreny something is going wrong. Three deaths in a row under one roof — the first wife, son and grandson Soreny, and then fleeing the second wife have guided people to think that their dwelling villager captured ghosts.
The community is especially alarmed when a local shaman announced that settle in the home Soreny evil can harm not only his family but the entire village. And, in order to calm the unrest, the elders ordered that a "bad" home was the rite of exorcism.

As a result, the elders came to the conclusion that their careless fellow deserved to be punished and ordered them to pay a fine of 633 dollars.

Meanwhile, residents of another Indian village unanimously decided to expel from their area of evil spirits, refusing to eat meat and polls going into vegetarianism.

Five local residents were killed in car accidents, and another two died of unknown disease. Residents explain this surge in accidents machinations of evil spirits. The elders of the village believe that insolent expel demons can only refused to eat the meat of animals slaughtered innocent.
Now the entire village lives under the sign of vegetarianism. On the shelves of local stores have disappeared chickens and eggs, and fishermen left their craft.
In addition, in the hope of propitiating the divine forces, the villagers regularly hold religious rituals
