    Indian cops called to investigate ghosts

    Associated Press

    <!-- begin body-content -->NEW DELHI - Malevolent ghosts stealing your chickens and torturing you in the night? Who you gonna call? For farmer Sunil Das, his first call was the police, who laughed at what they thought was a joke, the Hindustan Times newspaper reported Tuesday.
    But a judge in India's northeastern state of Assam saw little humor in Das' allegation that ghosts controlled by his neighbors were making off with his poultry at night. Instead of laughing, the judge ordered police to get to work and find the culprits, the newspaper reported.
    In his complaint, Sunil Das accused his neighbors of using their "obedient but malevolent" ghosts, "subjecting me to physical and mental torture," the newspaper reported.
    Das said his neighbors were notorious for using black magic against people they had a grudge against.
    Superstitions and belief in ghosts are widespread across India, particularly in rural villages.
    Nevertheless, police working the case said it was a first for them.
    "We have dealt with hardcore criminals and armed militants but this is the first time we are required to pursue a case with a spooky angle to it," the newspaper quoted a local police officer as saying.
    "We are yet to crack the case but investigations are on," said the unidentified officer.

    Well Sir, we heard you and your neighbor had a heated argument and you threatened to kill him and now he is dead. What do you have to say for yourself?

    "It wasn't me, it was my ghost."

    :lol: LOL

    Don't know for sure, but I would imagine that if I were a ghost, there would be other items on my agenda than stealing chickens.

    We know that 3 out of every 5 male ghosts aren't stealing chickens that often. They are peeping into women's locker rooms and showers. The fourth is gay and the fifth is blind. Then again, don't know what kind of damage you can do with a Hollow Weanie. :lol:
