I heard this when I was in class 5. We were staying in Baramunda (Orissa, India).
Then the place was not developed properly and surrounded by green open fields. Nearby villagers used that area for cremation purpose and dumping garbages.
It was 1995, there was a tradition of picking flowers too early in the morning for worshipping of god, incase you are late then you might end up with a little or no flower for your daily ritual. My uncle was the one who's into that competition.
One day around 4:00 am in the morning he woke up, as we all knew nights were long during winters. It was a chilly windy night, nobody was seen outside. Howling of dogs were making it difficult for him to move further. Somehow he managed and started plucking flowers nearby, but the kind of flowers he was looking for is not there, so he decided to move to the corner buildings which has many varieties back side of that building. Normally backside of that area is never cleaned and too many bushes and other trees planted there without proper care and paying any kind of attention to it.
Slowly he moved further and focuses his torch in search of flower around those bushes and trees. Suddenly he heard some noise like cats do or little baby crying. He kind of freaked out and decided not to move further, then what he saw was scary, an image of an lady sitting above the branches at a distance of 8-10 meter away. He freaked out and out of anger, threw stones towards that entity to which he saw that image jumped like a monkey to the top branches and faded away.
