Tourism body suggests turning ‘loud knocks’ into ghost tours

MELAKA: A Melaka tourism body has suggested making the mysterious “loud knocks” on house doors in the state into a spine-tingling ghost tour package in rural areas.

Melaka Tourism Business Club vice-chairman Dennis Samford said several paranormalists were interested in introducing the spooky occurrence for the brave hearts.

The spooky incident was recently reported at Alor Gajah and had gone viral online.

Samford said the ghost tour package could start from Kampung Lapan where the hauntings were reported in April 2016 when apparitions were sighted by the villagers.

“It should include a visit to Bukit China, which is the oldest cemetery in the country.

“The nine-storey building in Jalan Bendahara could also be an attraction as the appearance of ‘a lady in red’ had previously generated a lot of interest among Singaporeans, ” he said yesterday.

Samford added that the tour could also be made into an interactive ghost experience.

Mysterious loud knocks on house doors have been reported in various parts of the country over the past few weeks with the latest in Pahang.

Some claimed the knocks were acts of mischief by certain groups and were not a supernatural occurrence.

Melaka CID chief Asst Comm Mohd Sukri Kaman however said the police had not received any reports on the incident in Alor Gajah.
