This incident occurred about 2 years ago. I was spending my summer holidays at my grand parents' house. Me and my friends were gossiping when the topic turned on to ghosts. I was telling them about my story which I had posted earlier on this site (Ghost Summoned Unknowingly), when one of my friend suggested to explore a haveli (a big old-fashioned bungalow) in our village which was supposedly haunted. It was said that a burglary had taken place in haveli and whole family except one small child was murdered. Since then many ghost sightings had been reported there and the people would report cries of a girl coming from the place. It was also said that anyone who slept in that haveli would be found dead in the morning without any cause of death. Post-mortem report would also reveal nothing. Many purification rituals had been done there but with no positive effect. We were a bit nervous on hearing this but still we planned to go there in the evening. We were 4 in number. Let the name of my friends be A,B and C. We met at haveli about 6 pm in the evening.
The first look of the haveli made me a little afraid. The main gate was in a terrible state and the garden behind it was full of wild plants with garbage lying around. We climbed over the gate and went inside. We walked up the garden towards the main house. The walls were covered with weeds and other plants. I thought from its looks anyone could say it was haunted. We tried to open the door but failed. Then friend C tried to look in through the window. He screamed the next moment and being scared we all ran towards garden. We asked him what happened, he said that a girl was there inside looking at him. Friend A being the bravest once again went to the window and said it was just a portrait of a girl smiling. We all laughed at C's cowardliness when all of a sudden we heard a crash from the house and the door suddenly opened by itself. Now I became very scared and suggested to go from there immediately but A refused to go and said it must have been the wind (how could wind open a door we had tried to open ourselves moments ago?) . Scared and nervous we all went into the house. First room was the drawing room with old fashioned chairs lying around with a diwan and a big table in the middle. Many pictures hung on the walls which seemed to be of the unfortunate family and of course we looked at that smiling girl's picture and still laughed at C. C was getting very nervous and sweating and said he was not feeling well there. We asked him to wait there while we explored the rest of the house. After the drawing room there was a big hall with two stairs going to rooms upstairs and there was a big dining table in the middle and plates and spoons were lying here and there. We assumed that the family was perhaps having food when the mishap took place. Me and B went upstairs while A looked into the rooms on ground floor. First room me and B went into seemed to be the room of that smiling girl as a big portrait of her hung on the wall. There were clothes and books lying around and there was small box there on the dressing table. I opened it and found a necklace in it. I was just fascinated by that necklace and put it in my pocket and then the window of the room banged. B asked me to throw away the necklace which I did and ran out of the room. Then we heard a cry downstairs, we went down and saw A lying on table in an awkward manner. It seemed as if I had provoked the spirit and now it had started harming us. I shook him and got him onto his feet. He said someone had come from behind and just pinned him on the table. Just then we heard a laughing from the drawing room. I exclaimed C was there in the room. We rushed outside and what we saw next was totally unnatural. C was sitting on the chair laughing as if he had inhaled some laughing gas. A exclaimed how could one being so scared few minutes ago suddenly go crazy like this. B said he suspected he might be possessed. Now we three were super scared. How could we get C to his senses? Suddenly C stood up and said that we had done a great mistake coming there and provoking him. Then he looked at me and said "you wanted the necklace? Here take it." And suddenly a necklace came flying towards me and struck me near my left eyebrow and it started bleeding. Now we were sure he was possessed by that girl spirit. Then C again sat on the chair and laughed like a mad person. Then A suggested bow down and seek forgiveness from the spirit. We did the same and promised we would never ever disturb the spirit again. The plan worked, C suddenly became unconscious and we ran to the garden carrying him. We laid him on the ground and began to pray when he suddenly got up and asked us why we were praying. We told him what had happened and he told us he felt very uncomfortable looking at the girl's portrait and sat down on one of the chairs and closed his eyes when suddenly he felt he was being embraced by someone and when he opened his eyes it was the same girl in the portrait and what happened next he does not remember.
We quickly climbed over the main gate and ran away.
It still gives me goosebumps on remembering the incident and the necklace scar on my eyebrow is still there (now it works as an identification mark for me!).
One thing I still think about is that when the spirit had never left any of the former intruders unharmed why did it let us go?
Also why do the purification rites don't have any effect on the place?
