Nuwakot-On 10 January 2000, the Maoist attacked a police station 14km from Bidur. The post was restored in May this year, but since then srange things have been going on. At midnight an invisible force enters the station, says constable Tikaram Thapa, and people feel a pressure around their necks like someone is trying to strangle them. Some policemen have become unconscious.
When the Maoists attacked the station, there were 10 policemen inside and three were killed. They spirits of those who died still roam around the station and come back to haunt the living, the policemen believe. They have asked for a transfer, but permission has not been granted.
Nuwakot's Superintendent of Police Dhiraj Pratap Singh says "necessary steps" will be taken. "Either a puja will be performed," he said, "or the station will be moved somewhere else."
