A millionaire businessman in England claims that ghosts have forced him to leave his huge country mansion!
32-year-old Anwar Rashid, claims ghosts have forced him out of his 52-room mansion in the English county of Nottinghamshire. Mr. Rashid bought Clifton Hall mansion in 2007 for around $6.6m, but has now stopped paying his mortgage and returned the house to the bank, after only 8 months residency.
He recruited the help of paranormal investigators after he found strange blood stains on bedclothes and was ‘haunted by mysterious figures’. Mr. Rashid, who has an estimated fortune of around $46m, is said to have made his money through a chain of nursing homes, a hotel in Dubai, and 26 other properties.
He and his 25-year-old wife, Nabila, moved into Clifton Hall with their two daughters, aged 7 and 5, and 18-month-old son. “I fell for its beauty but behind the facade it is haunted… The ghosts didn’t want us to be there and we could not fight them because we couldn’t see them” he said.
According to Mr. Rashid, the paranormal experiences began on the first day they moved in, ranging from tapping on the wall and unexplained voices to ghostly presences taking the forms of their children. “When we found red blood spots on the baby’s quilt, that was the day my wife said she’d had enough. We didn’t even stay that night.”
“When people used to tell me about ghosts, I would never believe them and would say ‘whatever’. But I would have to tell any new owner that it was haunted having experienced it.” he added.
