Un-Neighborly Use of Black Magic

CATEGORY: Robbery and Toture by Ghosts

TAG:

COMMENTARY: The police will be able to do little in this case, and the courts will not solve Mr. Das' problem. Discounting the affair as superstitious is the easy way out, however we take this assault and theft very seriously. We have notified our respresentatives in New Delhi and will look into this matter. Updates to be issued with progress.









Indian Cops Called to Investigate Ghosts

Tue Jul 11, 10:08 AM ET

Malevolent ghosts stealing your chickens and torturing you in the night? Who you gonna call? For farmer Sunil Das, his first call was the police, who laughed at what they thought was a joke, the Hindustan Times newspaper reported Tuesday.

But a judge in India's northeastern state of Assam saw little humor in Das' allegation that ghosts controlled by his neighbors were making off with his poultry at night. Instead of laughing, the judge ordered police to get to work and find the culprits, the newspaper reported.

In his complaint, Sunil Das accused his neighbors of using their "obedient but malevolent" ghosts, "subjecting me to physical and mental torture," the newspaper reported.

Das said his neighbors were notorious for using black magic against people they had a grudge against.

Superstitions and belief in ghosts are widespread across India, particularly in rural villages.

Nevertheless, police working the case said it was a first for them.

"We have dealt with hardcore criminals and armed militants but this is the first time we are required to pursue a case with a spooky angle to it," the newspaper quoted a local police officer as saying.

"We are yet to crack the case but investigations are on," said the unidentified officer.
