Assalamoalikum and greetings everyone. I have been a reader of YGS for years and don't have any paranormal experiences of my own. The incident I'm about to narrate was told to me by my wife and which happened to my mother-in-law.
A bit of a background about our family. I and my wife are both medical doctors doing our post-graduation and born and bred in Karachi with Urdu as our first language.
This happened when my wife was about 6-7 years old and her family decided to take a trip to the Northern areas of Pakistan. Gilgit & Baltistan along with Kashmir are some of the most beautiful places in the world with tall ice capped mountains and captivating valleys and above all with the solitude and calmness in contrast to the busy and polluted air of the cities is a welcome escape from the daily routine.
So coming back to the story, they packed and left in early morning for a week's trip which included the parents and my wife with her 3 elder siblings (2 sisters and brother). They enjoyed a lot on their trip especially at the famous Hunza and Kaghan valleys.
At one point, with a day remaining of their trip they couldn't find a suitable hotel and after much hassle got one at a very distant place with very little population and residences around. There was hardly anyone residing in the hotel at that moment and they got a room on the 2nd floor. Now this room had 2 windows, one larger facing one of the beds at some distance from the foot end and both of these were locked. As there was a day remaining they decided to do some shopping and left in the afternoon and returned around 10pm. They immediately took to packing their stuff.
My mother-in-law couldn't find a beautiful ladies handbag she bought on one of her earlier shoppings. They looked everywhere in the room and in their travel bags which sounded very strange as they took much care locking all their stuff when they left and she distinctly remembered putting it in one of the travel bags and locking it up, then where did it go? It was already late night so they decided to sleep with hopes of giving it one more try in the morning before leaving.
That night my mother-in-law woke around 2pm at night and felt the room's temperature to be unusually cold when something caught her eye which gave her chills. She saw that the large window near the bed was open and there was a woman sitting on the window sill facing her. She was attired in traditional northern clothing even wearing a traditional Hunzai womam cap and had a blank expression on her face. The eerie part was that she had my mother-in-law's handbag in one hand and with her other hand was slowly gesturing calling her near as if to come and take her bag. My mother-in-law started reciting Duas and drew the blanket over her face and kept it as such. After sometime she felt that the heaviness and cold in the room had gone but she couldn't sleep for the night.
When everybody woke up in the morning, she was shocked to see the window locked and her handbag lying on the side table near the bed. She told everyone after which they started packing and left.
The thing which concerned her was that how the lady got there when everything was locked, how she got the bag in the first place and above all who was she and whether she was evil. They tried asking the receptionist about it and he had no clue either as he started working there recently.
Apologies for the length of the story and thanks for reading. Kindly let me know what you think in the comments section.
