Kosmo! reported that residents in several villages in Sabak Bernam were being disturbed by “ mysterious knocking” on their front doors.

The incident seemed to have spread to other villages in Tanjung Karang and Kuala Selangor, some 64km away from Sabak Bernam.

Resident Anuar Anal, 43, claimed to have heard knocking on the front door while he was in the bathroom in Kampung Parit 3 Sungai Buntong some days ago.

“I was shocked to hear the knock at 1am. But I didn’t suspect anything and I went back to sleep. After a few seconds I was woken up by more knocking, ” he said, adding that he then peeped out his window.“I didn’t see anybody. I felt scared and went back to bed, ” said the Sabak Bernam district council staff.

He said both his wife and three children did not hear anything.
