The reason behind this being that the whole place was built on the war grounds of Nizams. There have been mild unexplained cases where lights have fallen down, knocking on the bathroom doors from inside when the door was locked from inside, strange messages found on mirrors written in Urdu. Somehow women are targeted much more than men by the ghosts of the dead Nizams. There have been a number of reports on torn clothing and menacing shadows in the changing rooms.
