Begunkodor(Purulia): A group of pragmatists spent a night at a dark railroad station in Purulia trying to bust the myth that it is haunted. Rather, they chanced upon two or three local people, who were attempting to alarm the colleagues. Concealed in a far corner of the region close to the Ayodhya slopes, Begunkodor station has been reputed to be swarmed with phantoms for more than forty years.Often, travelers have been left terrified and even harmed following 'experiences' with spirits. On Thursday night, ten individuals from the Paschim Banga Bigyan Mancha (PBBM) with assistance from the Purulia region organization, police and railroads, stayed outdoors at the spooky station yet discovered nothing spooky. "There are a few apparition stories spun around the station. One is that a station ace and his significant other had set themselves ablaze at Begunkodor and their spirits can be spotted. Another talks about a lady who hanged herself from a tree adjacent. Lamentably, put something aside for a snake exasperating the water in a well and two or three men, who were attempting to panic us by making abnormal commotions, we experienced no other unsettling influence," said Nayan Mukherjee, region president, PBBM. In the course of the most recent couple of years, a few people — inspired by making a snappy buck — have energized individuals from Kolkata and somewhere else to visit Begunkodor station on 'phantom visits'. Around 10 pragmatists settled down at the station soon after 11 pm and afterward began making their rounds. Their first stop was a broken down well and for a minute they were shocked something was in the water. At long last, a light bar got the state of a water wind. The group at that point made a beeline for the opposite side of the little station building where a 'chhatim' tree stands. Nothing strange was distinguished close to the tree, accepted to be spooky. PBBM individuals likewise set two computerized compasses at the two closures of the station to get any attractive unsettling influence. The magnets did not identify anything. Neither do the two advanced cameras or tripods catch any irregular picture. While all these were going on, the group heard a clamor — half human, half creature — from the haziness behind the station building. "We needed to discover where it was originating from. Light bars got figures in the shrubs and we pursued them. We recognized several men fleeing. This is a ploy to downy vacationers, who visit the station searching for apparitions. As the guests escape, they abandon assets, which are stolen," said PBBM part Somnath Parta.
