- On another occasion, phantom footsteps could be heard and some office desks rearranged themselves to prevent a guard from escaping. Could be the ghost of an interior decorator. I bet the guard left before the ink dried on his resignation form.

1 – Begunkodor Train Station, India,
- West Bengal’s Begunkodor Train Station is known as one of the most haunted train stations in the world. Officials closed the station in 1967 following the sudden death of a staff member under mysterious circumstances.
- The station remained closed for forty-two years as, according to village legend, someone at the station would die whenever a lady in a white saree appeared nearby. It’s thought that this vengeful spirit was once hit by a train and is now unable to move on.
- The station was controversially reopened in 2009 after Mamta Banerjee, the Chief Minister of West Bengal, put her foot down and said, ‘I don’t believe in ghosts.’ Despite this, many locals avoid the station, believing it’s still haunted.
