Kolkata, June 17: The landline at the Paranormal Research Society office in Kolkata refuses to stop ringing, especially after the De family shocker.
Requests and demands are pouring in everyday to track spirits in one place or the other. While there are innumerable requests to check residential houses for ghosts, there are other requests to join the organization as Ghost busters.
The society has examined about 300 haunted places in Bengal and 70 in Kolkata itself. Explaining their activity, one of the members said they have detected electromagnetic fields in many of them which did not have any possibility of getting one.
An investigator said,"Calls are coming from Kolkata and the districts. Some are calling to say they have seen shadows in their house, or heard strange sounds. Some point fingers at the neighbours place as a haunted house. Some want to enroll as members. Some want to be trained as paranormal investigators. Some even want to know black magic and how to bring skeleton to life. The demands are of every possible hue."
As far as the Dey family is concerned, Soumen Roy, a mechanical engineer and co-founder of the society said,"We have been watching the De family story closely. According to us though Partho De may have psychological problems, he is a methodical man.
We believe that he has learnt from broad the techniques of body and skeleton preservation as well as some art of invoking the dead. There are many who practise such things here, but he is more likely to have learnt about it from aboard."
However, members say that they were keen on investigating for any paranormal activity in the house.
