Ghost in Hill hospital?
Darjeeling: 'A well lit building. Suddenly a figure draped in white, with long flowing black hair appears and effortlessly climbs the pillars to disappear behind the balcony of the floor above...' What could be a clip from any horror film is now doing the rounds on social media, with a person claiming to have clicked it in the middle of the night at the Darjeeling Sub-Divisional Hospital. The video, which has gone viral, has created quite an uproar in the Hill town.
The video, which had appeared on social media a few days ago, is accompanied by an audio clip, in which a male voice appeals to carefully watch the video that follows. He then goes on to claim that he had shot the clip at the Darjeeling Sadar Hospital.
"This video clip was recorded by me in the out-patient department area of the Eden Hospital (Darjeeling Sadar Hospital). My aunt, who is terminally ill and admitted in bed number 135, wanted hot water and I had gone out to get it at around 11:40 pm when I saw this and recorded it," stated the voice.
The clip soon became viral with questions being raised. "It is in no way the Sadar Hospital. We do not have such pillars. It is a prank and we are not giving much attention to this. However, the police and district administration should take action against any person or persons involved in such a prank," stated Dr Saikat Pradhan, Superintendent of Darjeeling Sadar Hospital.
Interestingly, the same video clip had earlier surfaced on social media in Bharuch, Gujarat.
