It happened 9 years back, when I was working for a construction company. The location was very far from my native place, so company gave me shared accommodation. Along with me there were 10 more staffs. After one month few employees joined us, so company thought of taking a new apartment nearby in-order to accommodate all the staffs in to one place. After searching for a longer period they got one newly constructed apartment situated 30 minutes far from our construction site. Finally we all shifted to that new place, it was really nice to see that apartment far from crowded areas. We thought, we were the luckiest guys to join that apartment before anyone could. Clean rooms, newly painted walls, kitchens, washrooms all were fine in every manner.
It was a 4 story Apartment, Top floor used as a Pantry, while 2nd and 3rd floor having 4 rooms each used for living purpose. We were 19-20 persons including Cook, helper and a watchman. Ground floor used for storing things and each room in 2nd and 3rd floor shared by 2 persons. Things were good until one day when we saw dead bodies carried to the nearby place (Hardly 100 meters away) for cemetery, even from our window it can be easily seen burning of dead bodies.
It became a matter of discussion for all of us but as the work pressure was high, slowly we ignored that thing and carried our routine works as it was before. But during night we could feel that eeriness haunting us. Sometimes we can hear howling of dogs and other night creatures near to our apartment.
One-day when I was sleeping, I heard my roommate whose bed was near to me shout at mid night and complain someone pulled his leg. I asked him what happened as there's nobody besides me. He said for the past few days he was feeling like someone touching him during late night, initially he thought, it could have been by me but when he saw I was sleeping he kind of surprised and scared. I told him not to panic, maybe he had a bad dream.
On morning while having breakfast he shared the same incident to other inmates, to which most of them denied having such experiences but our cook said he felt someone's presence in the kitchen. When he used to finish his stuffs until late night before going to bed sometimes the utensils in kitchen fell strangely, even morning he found food items scattered many times on floor, to which he thought it might have due to the cats but listening to my friends experience he felt there is something else.
After 10-15 days to that incident, my friend became sick he lost few kg of weight and looked kind of pale so he took few days of leave from work and remained in room. On that day when I returned from work, my cook informed me that my friend who was sick, hospitalized as he slipped from stairs and broken his leg, when I heard this I went to the hospital and met him. I asked him how the hell he fell from stairs? To which he explained, when he was going to the washroom he saw an old lady slowly walking, go into the nearby room. He could not believe whether what he saw was real or an illusion? So he went to that room for inspecting who she was, but when he found no body was there, he freaked out and ran to the top floor towards pantry, where cook and his helper used to stay. While using the stairs he felt someone grabbed him from behind and threw him in the air, the force was so strong that he flew in air and fell rolling over the stairs. This caused him a broken leg and few injuries to his neck and face.
This incident was so brutal that we all roommates wrote one application to our management to change that apartment, afterwards one spiritual team visited our apartment and performed some holy rituals. They said these kind of things were happening as this apartment was never blessed being near to a cemetery. But things were under control now and we could stay happily.
I don't know what really happened to my friend as I was staying with him never experienced such things.
