My experience started 2 years ago when I visited my home town in Bangladesh. I have previously experiences paranormal activity when I had went to Bangladesh in 2008 where I heard footsteps outside the house but no one was there.
This experience was much scarier than the first experience I had encountered.
In Bangladesh it gets really hot so we open the windows and doors at night to let some breeze in. Our windows and doors have barriers around them so if we do open them no one can come in. I'm a very light sleeper so I wake up a lot during the night if there's a slight noise. I was in the room with my niece and I sleeping in the bed and my mum was asleep on the floor next to my aunt. It was the middle of the night, I wasn't sure what time it was as my phone was dead and there was no clock in the room. I was awoken by a noise that was coming from outside, it sounded like a can moving around on the floor. I had ignored it and tried to get back to sleep but then it stopped. I was happy it stopped since I could finally sleep in peace.
A few seconds had past since the noise stopped and I had already started to doze off, the I heard what sounded like a lady laughing. It was faint and I could just about hear it. It sounded like the lady was far from the house so I thought it might just be some crazy lady as we have a few of them down the road. I ignored it and tried to go back to sleep but then it stopped. The sound didn't get closer to the house when I first heard it so I thought maybe she went home. Then all of a sudden I heard a scream just outside the barrier, this made me jump up.
I was still on the bed trying to look outside the window and door but I couldn't see anything as it was pitch black. The screaming stopped but then the laughing started, it sounded like it was the lady from before but it would have been impossible for her to get in front of the barrier that quickly. Our front driveway is really long so even if you ran to the front of the house, it would have taken a few minutes to get there. I was so scared and shook as I didn't know what was going on.
The laughing continued and I was worried my niece would wake up and get scared so I slowly got out of bed to call my mum. As I was getting out of bed to call my mum I kept glancing at the door and window to see if there was anything there. I still couldn't see anything but the lady was still laughing. I had woken my mum up and told her if she could hear the lady, she said she could and she got scared too. We both woke my aunt up and told her about the situation. She was saying it's probably one of the crazy ladies from down the street and she will go and check it out. I forgot to say, my aunt isn't scared of anything.
After waking up my aunt we all went to the barrier outside the door to see who it was. My aunt grabbed a flashlight and shined it towards where she thought the sound was coming from. As soon as she pointed the light at the direction of the sound the laughing had stopped but, there was no one there. We were all confused but thought maybe their just hiding. So, my aunt being the unfazed person she is, she decided to open the front gate of the house to check it out. My mum and I stayed inside and watched from the other side of the barrier waiting for my aunt to appear to see what was going on.
A few minutes later my aunt appeared asking in our native language "Who's there? Come out before I come for you." She said it a few times but there was no response. She looked around the place but couldn't see anyone. There are only two ways in and out of our front porch but both ways are wide and open so if there was anyone to come in or leave we would see them from a far. However, my aunt could not see anyone leaving the area. My aunt came back inside and locked the gate. She then came to the door of the room but before she could enter we could hear the laugh outside the barrier again.
We were all so shocked as it was impossible for someone to come in front of the barrier again after my aunt checked the surrounding area and no one was there. We were all so shocked so we called my brothers and uncles who were asleep in the room next to us. They all went out to see who it was but as soon as they unlocked the gate the laughing stopped. The area was checked and no one was around, they even went upstairs and checked the rooftop even though it was impossible to go up there without coming inside the house.
My brothers and uncles had finally come back in after searching the surrounding area for about 10 minutes and found no one around. They told us to go to sleep and ignore it as it's probably a cayote or something. We were all so tired so we went back to bed and I eventually fell asleep.
The next day when we woke up everyone was trying to blindside what happened the night before. They didn't want to scare me or my family as we just got to Bangladesh a few days ago and didn't want us feeling uncomfortable. I spoke to my cousins about the situation and they said it could be something called a 'Ferotni'. A 'Ferotni' is a legend in Bangladesh about a ghost lady who wears white with long black hair. She goes around laughing and if she sees you she throws feces at you or urinates on you. The 'Ferotni' also runs around at night trying to find her next victim to attack or terrorize.
Who knows what it was, it sounds like it was a 'Ferotni' but one thing I'm glad about is I didn't have to see whatever or whoever was making that noise. This is my second experience with paranormal activity in Bangladesh. I hope next time I go I don't witness anything scary.
