I knew that would get you to click the link. Just what the heck is that?
Honestly, it sounds suspiciously like sleep paralysis.
X-files of Madhya Pradesh [India] police are replete with complaints of blood-curdling spirits on prowl, forcing police on a blind chase of the supernatural. And the latest complaint has intrigued the force after a spooked retired professor alleged attack from “blood and semen sucking spirits”. On Saturday, state cyber cell headquarters initiated a probe into the complaint of ‘paranormal activity’ after repeated pleas from the terror-struck professor. Assistant inspector-general, cyber cell, N K Jhariya, confirmed launch of the probe.
Prof Chandra Prakash Trivedi, 66, a resident of Indore, is an author of 10 books on Vedic science. “That woman is using air pressure magneto therapy to have sex with me. In the dead of night, I feel a ‘presence’ that nobody will believe. I have often run out of my house in the midnight,” Trivedi told TOI on phone. “I am a scientist, people may think, I am mentally disturbed, but I am not,” he said.
Officers wonder whether there are other issues behind the bizarre complaint. “It could be anything from an overactive imagination to narcotics driving hallucinations or indeed, a legitimate complaint. Whatever it is, we entertain all complaints be it against zombies or werewolves,” said another police officer. Trivedi also submitted copies of emails sent by the ‘suspect woman’ who he claims, unleashed evil spirits on him.
There has been several paranormal complaint lodged in the area over the years, in 2005, 2007 and 2011. Alleged ghost attacks seem to be nothing new to police here. The obvious question would be, “What could the police do about the sex-crazed spirit?” The professor blames it on witchcraft. What of the accused? I can’t imagine what the evidence would be other than just subjective accusations.
There are no details about the Professor’s situation but on the face of it, it sounds like the Old Hag syndrome, a terrifying, realistic, paralyzing sensation whereby it feels as if a hideous woman is on top, crushing you. It’s common. See: Taking on the old hag
A clue to the professor’s colorful interpretation of his sleep disturbance is that he studied “Vedic science” (science is used here VERY loosely). Black magic is an accepted belief. One symptom of black magic is disturbed sleep. So, his perceptions are enhanced by his belief in such evil forces. If he has a sleep disorder as well, he could easily be prone to interpret it in this context.
Get this poor man some medical attention to see if he has a sleep disorder before concluding (and publishing in the media) that there are evil spirits assaulting people.
