The creature “Kala Bandar” aka Monkey Man was first seen in the capital of India, Delhi. Not just seen but this beastly creature was jumping from roof to roof in the town and city areas of Delhi, people have also reported that they got scratched by this beast and where even pushed from the roof. Today it’s still a mystery and people still don’t know what exactly it was.
(II) Nale Ba:
This urban legend originated in Karnataka and it is said to be a ferocious witch or sometimes a male spirit who roams at night from house to house, calling people by their names. It is said that Nale Ba possesses the voice of the victim’s kin before calling so that he or she responds. If the victim responds he dies by vomiting blood. The word “Nale Ba” means ‘Come Tomorrow’. People write ‘Nale Ba’ on their doors so the spirit visits tomorrow rather and the cycle repeats.
(III) Lady in White:

Not just this, people have also heard crying and laughter even when no one was there. Are you brave enough to visit this forest?
(IV) The mystery of Kuldhara:
Located in Rajasthan, this abandoned ‘ghost village’ was under the rule of Paliwal Brahmins who ended up putting a curse that no one will ever be able to reside in this village.
