    The spookiest places in Delhi which are allegedly haunted

    “From that day on, I have never made fun of people accounting for haunted places in Delhi

    The story goes back to one winter night when I was getting restless at my home and so I decided to go for a long drive with my friends. All my childhood friends are practically my neighbors. So I picked them up and we went in the general direction of our regular hang-out. We were chatting, laughing, goofing around when we heard a shrill voice from somewhere around. We came to a sudden halt and when we were entertaining the thought of inspecting the voice, a deformed kid came in our view. Mind you, that we were on a short cut route which is normally very secluded. When we all felt something creepy, my friends asked me to start driving and to not stop till we cross the path. When we started moving that kid became angry and started to throw rocks on my car and started screaming. We all noticed that the kid was black-eyed and he was abnormally pale. We took off from there like bats out of hell and never went back there. .”

It is believed that that the area on which this complex is established was once a graveyard with many ghost sightings then.

    As retold by Kunal Mathur, a Marketing Genius, “I was working returning from a party at 2 a.m. with three of my colleagues when I saw two people strangely dressed in Rajasthani attires walking away from us. We had heard many incidences about this road being one of the most haunted places in Delhi. We found it odd that why would anyone take a walk on these secluded roads at this time of the night. As soon as we crossed them, they started following us with inhuman speed. My colleague who was driving just pushed the speed to its limits and then also, those two spooky people were able to follow us. However, once we passed a small roadside temple, they just vanished in thin air. To this date, I haven’t been able to make any sense out of it. I haven’t traversed that haunted road again ever.”
