Hitchhiker Haunting At Wee Hours


I work at a MNC company which is situated around 35 kilometres away from my home. So I commute by my bike with another of my colleagues who used to accompany me 5 kilometers away onwards from my home. The road by which I was traveling was being newly constructed for about 5-7 kms. I had my first shift that week and it was around 4:35 in the morning and pitch dark.

Suddenly I saw a figure stand in the middle of the road on which only gravel was dispersed. I was riding fairly slow. As I approached near the figure I saw that it was a man in his late 20s. What was odd about him was that his face was covered with grease and all his clothes looked dirty and shabby. He was wearing a yellow T-shirt and jeans. He was asking me for a lift in Kannada language saying "Anna nilso Anna", meaning brother please stop. I just nodded to him in denial because my colleague had warned me not to drop anyone early in the morning or late at night.

I told this to him while we were returning from work and he said that he saw the same person at a different place late at night when he was returning home after finishing his second shift. I asked about the person's details to which he said that he too had the yellow T-shirt and jeans and his face was covered with grease.

I was scared when he told me that what you saw was not a human being but a ghost who might have met with an accident where I encountered it. I explained this to my parents when I returned home and they were worried about me. Since then my mother applies holy ash on my forehead while going to work and I haven't encountered anything else.

A very interesting situation. Thank you for sharing.
Lady glow, I laughed when I read your comment about a fever usually follows sightings in India. (Love your sense of humour)
I do hear people sometimes break out in a cold sweat. Maybe that's what our Indian YGS members associate with fever?

I saw the reflection in my bike mirror that the road was empty. Other than that, I did not look back

Hi rahul_shelar16

Same ghost haunting two different areas 🤔, did you turn to look back to see if he was still standing there?, or did he say anything when you denied him a lift?

Welcome to YGS.

Hi Rahul. I have some questions about your encounter.

"what you saw was not a human being but a ghost who might have met with an accident where I encountered it."

I do believe that spirits tend to stay close to places that were important during their life and/or at the moment of their passing. Nevertheless, your friend reported seeing the same person/ghost at a different location.

Do you know how far is the place where your friend saw the man?
Would it be possible that he's a living person finishing their work shift at that time? Perhaps working at some mechanic shop and wearing a uniform? Or a homeless, wandering person?

Anyway, I'm glad neither you nor your friend came down with a high fever after these encounters, as many people from India seem to report after having a paranormal encounter.

Thanks for sharing.
