BJP leader spooks AAI over 'haunted' story

Ghost stories don't always thrill. In fact, vice-president of Bharatiya Janata Party's city unit Sandeep Khardekar is quite irked after reading one such story in the July edition of Airports India, a magazine published by the Airports Authority of India (AAI).

Khardekar has so much that he written to the AAI seeking an explanation and asking or telling the authority to be ready to face a police complaint. While the AAI responded with an explanation as well as an apology, Khardekar is not impressed.
"I was travelling back from Srinagar, via Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, on August 5 when I came across the magazine at the airport's lounge. I picked it up casually and flipped through the pages. I saw a story which talked about India's most haunted places which had the byline of one Keshav Choubey. The story had examples of some haunted places in Pune including Chandannagar and Shaniwarwada. The article also had pieces about Grand Paradi Towers in Mumbai and Raj Kiran Hotel located in Lonavla," he said.
Khardekar was particularly said he was shocked upon reading the story considering the fact that an anti-superstition law exists in Maharashtra. "Having read it, I sent a formal complaint to the AAI through their portal on September 9 demanding action against the writer. They have written back to me but I am not convinced at all," Khardekar told TOI, adding that he has received a string of mails by the AAI.
