I was thinking of writing this story from a long time. It's about a place that is haunted by a really powerful ghost. There is a village in Haryana State of India and its name is Shekhupur Daroli. If you visit this place, you will see a empty area with some rubbles of old buildings in center of the village. Not a single person in village will agree to put a leg on this land, even the dogs and animal keep distance. You can see dogs barking everyday from a distance. The reason behind is pretty much terrifying. It has hundreds of stories and experiences, but I am going to describe the ones that I have seen or includes my family and friends.
First little background of the story. Before 1947, India had this system where few people had all the lands and all poor people used to work in these lands. One of these powerful landlord was Chuned Khan. He was very cruel to his people. He paid less, killed people when he was opposed, robbed marriages and kidnapped brides. It was gone too far, and all the villagers together decided he should be killed. Another landlords along with an army person, shot Khan dead in his house. To the government it was still a crime so both killers flew away hiding places to places. They even have songs about this incident. Anyway, Khan's family were good people and his son said that his father was cruel and he mean no harm to anyone.
After few months India got its freedom and with freedom Pakistan was born. Like many other families Khan's family also went to Pakistan, but one person decided to stay at his place- Chuned Khan. Even he was dead, he still wanted to rule the people and torture them. That's where it all started.
In 2006 when I was 15, there was a marriage in my village and my uncle was attending it. He drank there and was coming home somewhere around midnight and took the street that is adjoining to haunted place. When he came home, he stayed for 5 minute and went to a local alcohol seller, woke him up and bought four bottles. I should tell you that one bottle of this local bottle is enough to get four person high. My uncle, let's call him Jag, came home and drank all of them. And then again around two am in morning he was trying to go out, but his son Roh woke up and asked him what he is doing. Soon Roh realized his father is drunk so he tried to stop him. Jag started running in street, and saying I WILL TAKE HIM in a different person's voice.
Luckily it was summer and people were sleeping outside, my father and other neighbors woke up and were able to get hold of Jag. My family was angry on my uncle for drinking so much but they had no idea what is happening.
With help of four people Roh took his father home, but Jag was continuously trying to go out. Many other neighbors and family member joined them. This is where I came in. I always slept with my grandmother at her home. One of my cousin came to woke her up asking for help. My grandmother has some psychic power and she also keep holy water and all that stuff at her home.
So I went with my grandma and what I saw was horrifying. Fourteen to fifteen people were trying to get hold of Jag and he was throwing everyone away. I stood in a corner watching all this. Jag was saying one thing again and again, "You can't stop us, we will take him." His voice was mix of like two people speaking at same time. All of sudden my grandma shouted, "Hey Duni! What you are doing here?" She said to us that there is Mani and Duniram trying to control Jag's body. Now these people were dead from many years, both were young and died unnatural death. They both were alcoholic. My Grandma saw someone standing on main door of home but didn't recognize him.
Things were bad and Jag's body was hurting from struggle. Finally they tied him to bed with scarfs and cloths so he can be sustained without injuries. My grandmother used holy water for clearing and everyone prayed together. Jag stopped struggling after a while but he was kept tied and everyone stayed there until morning.
In the morning a priest was called for proper cleaning. He told that it's not an ordinary spirit, it is angry one. Later on another big priest was called who explained us everything. He said that the angry spirit is of Khan and he is controlling other spirits. He wanted Jag's soul to increase his power. He said he can't get rid of Khan but he did cleaning of our houses and said our house are protected but we have to avoid that haunted place and even streets, specially Jag as he is a soft target. After that Jag never drinks alcohol. Everything that priest said was confirmed by other priest and people.
Once my childhood friend SR was coming home from fields in night with his a father. They were coming after watering their fields and had shovel with them. When they were passing by the haunted place, SR saw someone. Being an strong young man he showed him the shovel saying "You see this? I will cut you in pieces." The next moment SR was thrown away by a strong push and shovel went flying for like 15-20 meters. His father helped him get up and they ran until they were home. Priest was called for help but SR still suffered with high fever for three days.
The Khan is seen by many people. Right now this place is still abandoned and villager are trying very hard to get rid of Khan's spirit. Every year they organize a big cleaning process and pray for Khan's peace.
