1. KuldharaKuldhara village in Rajasthan was abandoned overnight leaving behind an entire village of crumbling homes and buildings. Legend has it that the ruler of the region took a keen interest in the daughter of the subjugated village chief, and to escape humiliation the entire village of 1500 disappeared overnight. It is said the village chief cursed the abandoned village, in a way that anyone who tried to inhabit it would die. Even today, visiting the village is only something the brave would try and staying the night is at one's own risk.
Members of the Paranormal Society of Delhi stayed the night and reported supernatural happenings such unexplained moving shadows, footprints, noises and touching of members.
2. MuhnochwaIn 2002, the rural areas of Uttar Pradesh were in panic about a strange creature that swept down like a miniature UFO beaming red and green lights. The creature was described as hawk-like, with metal claws that aimed at scratching victim faces, leaving them writhing with pain. Many people were so terrified that temples held sermons to ward away evil spirits while some villagers stayed up all night around bonfires with guns and water canons.
The hype gradually died down when police went all out to convince people that the existence of this creature was a rumour and that the victims who were affected were probably injured by an unexplained force of nature.
