5 Most haunted railway stations of India

Though long debated and much written about, no one can completely ignore the presence of other worldly. We love the ghost stories for the spine-chilling sensation they provide. Horror, for many is also a form of adventure (as long as it remains safe). Indian railways having one of the longest railway networks in the world, has the capacity to deliver all types of experiences to passengers. What if we tell you that there are certain railway stations in India that are well known for being haunted. Let us have a look at 5 of these.

Barog Station (BOF), Shimla

Barog railway station

Situated close to the station lies the Tunnel no. 33 or the Barog Tunnel, where many locals have seen paranormal activity. As the story goes, the tunnel was constructed by a British engineer Colonel Barog. One error in his judgement, led to his humiliation in front of the workers. This pill was too hard to bite and the engineer committed suicide while taking a stroll along the tunnel. He was later buried near the tunnel. Soon after, the haunting activities started happening within the tunnel. Many have felt the presence of Colonel Barog within the tunnel.

Begunkodor Station, West Bengal

This railway station remained closed for 42 years due to frequent haunting issues. Many passengers getting down at the station in odd hours, reported fearsome encounters with a woman ghost. It was also believed that the ones who saw the ghost, died soon after. Passengers stopped getting down at this station and employees fled the premise. The last incident happened in 1967, when a worker died of fear after seeing a ghost draped in a white saree. In 2009, the railway station was reopened but fear in the hearts of passengers still remains deep rooted.

Naini Station (NYN), Uttar Pradesh

The Naini Jail, where many freedom fighters were tortured and finally died, lies close by the railway station. Though the severity of haunting here is not as much as the above two, yet people believe that souls of the dead roam around the station and tracks after nightfall.

Chittoor Station (CTO), Andhra Pradesh

Chittoor railway station

This is the latest addition to the list of haunted railway stations in India. Last year, all of a sudden the Chittoor railway station would be deserted in late evenings. People avoided the station after nightfall. It was heard that the station and its premises were haunted by a CRPF official named Hari Singh, who had been attacked by fellow RPF personnel and TTEs in October, 2013. Hari Singh got down at Chittoor railway station, but succumbed to his injuries. It is believed that the soul of this officer is searching for justice.

Ludhiana Station (LDH), Punjab

Ludhiana railway station

Unlike other railway stations in this list, all areas of this station are completely fine and used by the general passengers even after nightfall without any complaints. All but a small room beside the Reservation Counter can be considered completely normal. This small room remains closed all through, and do you know why? It is believed that a Reservation Counter official named Subhash died in this very room in 2004. People believe it is his love for the job that keeps his spirit lurking within the room. Each time one has tried to sit in this room, they have faced various troubles.

      Yeah I’m also with u sayed I too believe that there is no ghost or any other paranormal activity around us ….
      That’s just we feel some nature exciting adventure spots and I’m sure there’s nothing like ghost in the world ..
      Either someone just made it for horror entertainment or any joking mood . Just be calm there is ntg such as ghost .
