People have supposedly often heard noises that are unaccounted for. The locals claim to have heard women screaming and crying, bangles breaking and strange music emerging from the fort. There have been instances where a special perfume was emanating from the Bhangarh Fort along with ghostly shadows and inexplicable lights. Some people have felt the strange sensation of being followed and even slapped by an invisible entity.

Truth behind the hauntings of Dumas Beach
We went to Dumas two times to investigate about the hauntings. First time we decided to go in a daytime so that we can have conversation with residents of Dumas village and second time at night so that we can see if hauntings are true or not.
On very first day, we went to Dumas around 6 PM with a DSLR camera. There are around four different beaches in Dumas, people mostly hangout on two of them. We first went to those two to talk with the residents. We went to local shopkeepers and asked them about the hauntings of Dumas. They all firmly denied to the news of Dumas being haunted. It was around 7 PM now. We then headed to the third beach, which is known by only some people. That beach is having a graveyard where Hindus were buried. We could see only one stall on that beach. We went to ask person on the stall about hauntings. He too denied to have such hauntings. Now we were waiting for the sun to set. We were waiting for the night; so we hung around till 11 in nearby places. Then we decided to go to the third beach again, where the graveyard is situated. Now it was time to capture some photos of the place. I tried capturing photos with my DSLR. But I could not capture a single picture as something went wrong with the flash light of my cam.
