Mysterious creature knocks on doors, windows at night; panic among residents in Thrissur village
Perumpilavu: A mysterious creature is creating panic among the locals living in Karikkad, North Karikkad, Villannur, Aruvayi and Kongannur regions. Many people have seen the mysterious creature moving around in the region and some think it is a man.
The creature appears on rooftops and in the front yards of houses after 9 pm. However, locals say that it is a dark shape which is not clearly visible due to darkness. It usually makes noise by knocking on the doors and windows of houses.
People have been waiting for the last four days to see what this creature is. But it is said to be exceptionally quick as it jumps over walls and moves from one house to another in a flash. Last night, a group of locals followed it but the creature got onto the terrace of a house and then ran away after sliding down the trunk of a mango tree nearby.
Despite all the panic, no incident of theft or attack by the mysterious creature has been reported yet. Locals also doubt if a mentally unstable man is behind all this.
Locals are evading the lockdown orders by trying to catch the unknown creature. And for this, a complaint has been filed at Kunnamkulam police station. Another complaint was also filed against a man for causing panic in the region. Authorities have said that police will strengthen patrolling in the region.
