Gaurav Tiwari: Indian ghost buster's mysterious death is magnet for paranormal theories (24 july 2016)

First there was a sound of a thud, like something dropping on the floor. Those present in the home even heard someone lunging at the latch of the bathroom.

But no one got worried, everyone ignored the rustling sound coming from the bathroom. Indian door latches often turn rusty and refuse to work in a single turn.

But when Gaurav Tiwari did not emerge from the bathroom for almost an hour and there was no sound of the flowing tap, nor ruffling sounds of pushing water from body, his wife knocked the door.

She knocked one, twice, thrice. And then, she, Arya Kashyap, peeped through the window glass of the bathroom and screamed. A neighbour heaved at the door, almost fell inside by the impact. Pandemonium prevailed in the house.

India’s most well known ghost buster was on the floor, sweating profusely, eyes protruding, gasping for breath. The family members did not notice a deep black mark on his neck, they had to rush him to the hospital. An hour-and-a-half later, Tiwari breathed his last, even before the doctors could put him on the ventilator.

It was on the morning of 7 July 2016. A fortnight later, cops are now suspecting a case of homicide, pooh-poohing the original theory floated by members of Tiwari’s Paranormal Society of India that the death was the handiwork of some “evil forces”.

Was Gaurav Tiwari India's Ed Warren? Paranormal investigators had 'spooky' similarities (12 july 2016)

It was just a few weeks ago that the Hollywood film The Conjuring 2 was playing in Indian theatres.

The sequel to the highly popular original of the same name, the film continued to showcase the exploits of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren — arguably among the most famous couples or individuals to engage in this field.

While The Conjuring and its sequel are said to be based on real life cases the Warrens solved, observed or came into contact with, it remains open to conjecture, just how much their spooky subjects draw from reality.

The case of Gaurav Tiwari is no less strange than something out of a Conjuring movie.
