The ghost and the darkness: A night in the life of Begunkodar railway

There is a station of Ranchi railway board, Begunkodar. It is actually a halt between Jhalda and Kotshila railway station. Those traveling on the Ranchi-Bokaro railroad know that this station in Purulia district was built in 2009. Then there was more silence than today. The station has a bit of space nearby now.

It would be heartening to know that the story of a ghost stopped it for 42 years. When Mamata Banerjee was the railway minister in 2009, she asked to open the station again saying that … I am Bhutta Faith Corina (I do not believe in ghosts).

In fact, in 1967, the railway stopped this station as a ghost, which remained closed for nearly 42 years (the year 2009). According to the old people, the station master at that time saw a woman wearing white sari roaming on the rails at night. On the second day, he died. After this, there was a talk of the railway workers in the mind that there is a ghost on the station.

This land was received by the Railways in the donation. Queen of Begunkodar Lachan Kumari donated her land to the railway. The air was blown away that the ghost is actually the looking virgin.

The fear of this ghost was such that some railway workers did not want to stay at this station, so it stopped by the railway. Now this station has been reopened. Now with the locals, the railway workers also tell the story of ghosts as rubbish. They say that they have never seen any ghost here.
