Cops flee from 'haunted' police station

A police station in India's Jharkhand state is reportedly so haunted that everyone leaves by 11pm every night.
According to reports, policemen at the Jugsalai police station have been offering prayers for deliverance from 'wandering spirits' and are too terrified to stick around after dark.

"Nothing appears fine here," said one inspector. "We feel terrified all the time due to sudden fear."

The ghostly presence allegedly manifests in the form of strange sounds that occur after midnight. Some say that the building itself has been built over a local cremation ground.

Fear of the supernatural is a lot more prevalent in India than it is in the west.

In addition to the police station, the Begunkodar railway station in Jharkhand, which was shut down in 1967 after being described as a 'haunted place', was also thought to be home to ghosts and spirits.

Reportedly it had become impossible to run because no railway officials wanted to be posted there.

Well, I know where I'm moving if I want to commit crime after 11pm.

Have you noticed that spirits seem to emerge only after dark as if on a night shift schedule. But, therein we find the real culprit. No one really wants to work night shift so let us blame it on errant spirits so we can go home.

I love shift work, it’s nice to be out of sync with the majority. Maybe I’ll apply to work over there. Unsure about the pay though.

There is one brave soul remaining on night shift who cannot respond to calls because he is performing exorcisim rituals to cleanse the station (read hiding in the back room and sleeping.) Good people of Jamshedpur: you are on your own.

heck yeah, nights is the shift to work. Less hassle by far.

Evidently not for the police at this station. For producing some very educated people it's hard to believe this stuff still happens.  Are there some eerie things we can't explain yet?  Sure! But if the police are scared, I don't want them coming on a call to my home. My shadow man may scare them!  Haven't "seen" him for some time.  Maybe he got tired of camping out in my driveway.  Come to think about it, maybe my wife's old car was haunted as he's been gone as long as we have my wife's new car.

More likely human's fear levels rise at night. Couple the power of suggestion with an instinctive fear of not being able to see as well in the dark, and I think we've identified the source of a majority of ghost sightings throughout human history.

Psychological vetting is so important in public service applications.
