It was on the instructions of the ghost that I first poured kerosene on my body — victim

The Hush Post: In an almost Burari-like incident, a woman tried to commit suicide by pouring kerosene oil on herself after being guided to do so by a ghost.

And, the Gujarat Police have registered an FIR against an “unknown ghost” in an attempted suicide case of a woman in Vadodara district.

The incident is from Chokari village in Padra Taluka of Vadodara where a housewife attempted to commit suicide by pouring kerosene on herself. However, before she could, the family members tried to rescue her but she was completely burnt and admitted her to the Government SSG hospital in Vadodara.

When police asked her the reason for such a drastic step, Manisha Padhiyar claimed that she was “instructed by a ghost” to pour kerosene on herself and die. “It was on the instructions of the ghost that I first poured kerosene on my body and when the ghost told me to set myself on fire, I lit the matchstick,” she told cops.

Police did not think twice before registering a complaint and in the column for the accused’s name, entered “unknown ghost.”

When media persons questioned her in-laws, they claimed that she told the same thing to them also. Neighbour Preetiben said: “We do not know which ghost she was talking about, but she told us the same thing, she was told by some ghost to commit suicide.”

Her father ridiculed the entire story. “My daughter must have attempted suicide because of some domestic violence in her in-laws house and instruction by ghost was a framed-up story by her in-laws,” he claimed.

However, in the same breath, he admitted that she had never complained of any mistreatment by her in-laws and he too was told about “instructions by ghost” to his daughter.
