This is an incident which happened last year when I went for a trip with my friends & Boyfriend to Shimla which is a famous hill station in India.
I belong to Assam and Shimla was a long journey after a 3 hours flight and 4 hours of drive. So when we finally reached our destination, we checked-in in our hotel but didn't bother to check the rooms as we've booked it online and we were in short of time too. So, right after leaving our luggage at the hotel we went to explore the famous "Mall Road" which has some old buildings that belongs to the colonial era.
After we came back to our hotel we realized that it was kind of shady as we could see only 3-4 staffs and there were very few other guests at the hotel and mind you Shimla is a hot spot for tourists but we didn't bothered much as its a cold place and it was the month of January so that might be the reason for lesser number of guests.
I shared a room with my boyfriend and we decided to order dinner, as I tried to call the reception number I could hear a static sound, as if someone picked up the call and is saying something but for some reason it wasn't audible. I tried again but it was still not connected. My boyfriend went to the reception himself but there was no one there.
He asked me if I wanted to go out for dinner and though I didn't wanted to as it was freezing outside, I was hungry so we had to go out. Our friends already ate at the evening so they decided to stay back.
Coming back at the hotel, we saw the reception was still empty and we thought may be the hospitality isn't that good in the hotel as it was kind of cheap.
I went to the washroom to freshen up, and could hear faint knocks on the door, I kept saying "Two more minutes" thinking it was my boyfriend but he kept knocking so I opened the door and asked him what his problem was to which he seemed clueless as he was playing games in his phone. It was strange as I had clearly heard something, I thought may be because of the mild blizzard outside I might have heard something else.
We went to bed and fell asleep immediately as we were really tired. At around midnight I felt really cold, as I woke up I could see that my blanket was not upon me and I am a good sleeper, so there's no way that I had removed all three of the blankets.
I saw by the watch it was 2:05 am. I went to the loo, as I was washing my hands I heard a noise and a coin came rolling over to me on the ground. I was shocked as we haven't kept any of our clothes in the bathroom. So there's no way that's possible. For a moment I froze there, I couldn't move and I felt a shiver down my spine. I heard the faint knocks again, at this point of time I wanted to scream. I closed my eyes and kept praying, the knocks faded and I rushed towards the bed and woke my boyfriend up who didn't heard anything at all.
After I explained him everything, he checked the bathroom and found the coin but no source of where it came from. I was scared to my core and my boyfriend somehow convinced me that we spend the night there and would change the hotel the next day. I hugged him and slept.
Next day I kept the door opened while using the bathroom. While checking out there were staffs at the reception, as we asked them about our experience they seemed to be used to it and brushed us off saying, "Aisa hota hi rehta hai yaha" (These kind of things keep happening here).
We booked another hotel and completed our trip. Nothing happened after that.
