It was around 11.30 pm. The ever-bustling New Market had emptied long back, giving the semi-lit Victorian Gothic-styled giant shopping arcade on Kolkata’s Lindsay Street an eerie look.
Seven to eight shadowy figures appeared at the main entrance of the deserted market. They were there for an unusual mission—to explore some of the haunted places in Kolkata.
Like most old cities, Kolkata has a rich heritage of ghostly tales and places associated with it, blending legend and fantasy with history.
From Howrah bridge in its northern fringe to Hastings House at Alipore in the south; from an administrative building to a graveyard and a race course to a metro station, ghosts are believed to have creepy presence in several important landmarks of Kolkata.
