'Ghosts' at R'than power station, staff files complaint with police

In a bizarre incident, employees of a power grid sub-station in Barmer district of Rajasthan have lodged a police complaint accusing ‘ghosts’ for not letting them perform their duties.

Interestingly, local police visited the grid sub-station several times and even stayed there for an entire night to detect any paranormal activity  but failed to arrive on any conclusion.
Employees have now refused to perform their duties and have reported the matter to senior officials.

“We have visited the grid sub-station several times but could not spot any unusual activity. Initially, we thought that some miscreants are disturbing the employees to steal electric wires and transformers but it was not the case,”  said Dhanna Puri Goswami, station house officer of Sheo police station in Barmer district.

“On the insistence of the complainants, we stayed at the sub-station during night but everything looked normal,” he added.

Police can help only when a complaint is registered against a living person, he added.
Police informed that employees at the sub-station have accused evil spirits of jumping on rooftops, throwing stones on them and stopping them from attending to the electrical faults.

Complainants have mentioned that on several occasions when they climbed onto an electricity pole to fix a fault, they felt a ghost already working on the problem.

Some employees allegedly sustained electric shocks from out of service electric poles.
When the employees could not get any help from police, they hired local exorcists to fix the problem but all efforts proved futile.

Eventually, the employees have now requested senior officials of Energy Department to fix the problem or they will stop working there.

“We have received a complaint from the employees of Sheo grid sub-station and we will soon look into the matter. A few employees have requested to let them go on leave,” said a senior official of Barmer zone.

In the police complaint, employees have mentioned several incidents that have caused a sense of fear and panic among them.

The employees claimed that on several occasions, during midnight, they heard unusual noises which gave them an impression that someone was loading electrical equipment, transformers and cables on a truck.

When they went out to check, they found nothing. Employees have linked the unusual activities to the death of their colleague last year.

The colleague died of an electric shock at the sub grid-station while on work.
