Strange that nobody knows that in IRI
Even from SWR group also, most of them might not be knowing this. Only few people belonging to the Sur-Gdg-Ubl route, especially Bgk/Bjp districts has some idea on this. Our ancestors who knows this story had told us while traveling through this station during MG time. That movie gives us some idea how near by station's master warns of not to travel to this village in night.
