Haunted HQ Plagues Police Force

Haunted HQ Plagues Police Force

Officers at a police station in India say that they're forced to close their headquarters every night because it is haunted and no one wants to stay there. The building in question is located in the town of Jamshedpur and the spirits believed to be lurking inside have apparently been tormenting the cops who work there for months. Speaking to a local media outlet, one beleaguered official declared, "nothing appears fine here. We feel terrified all the time due to sudden fear."

The paranormal activity at the building has become so unsettling to the police department that they have been holding monthly prayer ceremonies and leaving offerings for the spirits in the hopes of placating them. However, the cops say that these efforts have failed to calm the restless ghosts which reportedly become particularly active late at night which has led to a rather strange predicament. "No one likes to stay at the police station at night and it is totally deserted by 11pm every day," one officer revealed.

As to where these spirits may have come from, the police department actually has an answer for that and it should sound familiar with ghost lore or urban legends. According to one officer, the building was built on a site that had previously been used by the village cremations. As such, the cops suspect that the paranormal activity is derived from spirits that somehow still linger at the location, leaving one officer to lament that "our police station is in the grip of ghosts." One can only hope that their story making its way into the media will not result in a crime wave hitting Jamshedpur now that residents know that there are no police officers on duty every night.
