Ghost blamed for death of student
Girl students of the Kenjakura High school have been complaining of ‘ghost’ menace since past few days.
“Nearly six girls last week complained that they have experienced some supernatural activities in the school premises, though we have not paid any heed to it,” said Mrs Rama Mukherjee, headmistress of the school.
She said: “A latrine in the school was abandoned for years and recently we have re-opened it after refurbishing it, which the students surprisingly said was a den of ‘ghosts’.”
Sulekha Dutta (11), a class VI student of the school fell sick after returning home from school yesterday. Her mother, Mrs Bani Dutta, said: “She complained of chest pain and kept telling that the ‘ghost’ in the school had gripped her.” The girl later was found hanging in her bedroom this morning. Police recovered her body.
The guardians raided the school demanding immediate sealing of the latrine. Mrs Mukherjee said: “They also ransacked the office room.” The school authority sent SOS to police.
Guardians like Mr Probodh Chanda and Mr Sadhan Chanda claimed that existence of ‘ghost’ was experienced in the school since few days. They said: “After the abandoned latrine was opened, the ghost menace has started and we have demanded immediate sealing of the latrine.”
