Not a single train stopped for 42 years
Coming to the station, people were so scared that the station was closed for 42 years after this incident. That is, not a single train stopped here for 42 years. The train used to pass from here, but as soon as it came to Begunkodor station, its speed was increased. In 2009, when Mamta Banerjee became the Railway Minister, she instructed to start this station again. However, after 5 pm, neither any passenger nor any railway worker used to stop at this station. People were so afraid that in the evening they used to run away from here.
The truth of the ‘bhootiya’ station has come to the fore!
Soon after the people vacated the station, the incidents of crime also started increasing here. Many people living in the city used to come here for adventure, but taking advantage of their fear, incidents like robbery were unnoticed with them. But some people brought the truth of this station to the fore. According to a December 2017 report on the New Indian Express website, a team of nine people from Paschim Banga Bigyan Mancha planned to stop here with the police in the same year. He had brought equipment like torches, cameras, compass etc. with him. He told the media that no paranormal movement was recorded in his equipment. But at around 2 o’clock in the night, strange voices were heard from behind the bushes. When he investigated by lighting, he saw that some people were standing behind the bush and making such sounds to scare them. He tried to catch them but failed. After this, those people guessed that for a long time, people at this place have been perpetrating the crime by intimidating others. Now the police is always stationed in this area and also makes people aware.
