Himachal Pradesh is a hilly state in India & in many areas over there, water problem is very much common. But nowadays in Chintpurni in Una district over there, fear of ghosts is so much that no one is brave enough to operate the pumps that are situated next to a cremation ground. Similarly taps run dry after dark in several villages of Himachal Pradesh only because of fear of ghosts.

The Karjadi water supply scheme near Chintpurni in Una district, was launched in February at a cost of Indian Rs.4 million ( US$ 95,000). But only after a few days, the water supply was hit in the night as an Irrigation and Public Health (IPH) employee refused to run the water lifting pumps due to fear of ghosts.

'Sometimes stones are hurled into the air and sometimes there are human shrieks in the middle of the night,' local media reports quoted unnamed staffers of the state IPH department as saying.
