There are plenty of haunted places in India that can give you goosebumps but if you thought these were all old, dilapidated buildings, you are wrong. Many structures that are thriving with people fall under the haunted category. Many residential buildings, as well as offices, are haunted and even though the people who live or work here know about it, they continue to go about their business and learn to live with it. Pune too has its share of spooky places. The Sinhagad Fort which is a popular tourist attraction is believed to be haunted. So is the Shaniwar Wada that was once home to Bajirao. Chandan Nagar is perhaps one of the scariest places in Pune where no one dares to go at night. Victory Theatre is another one that adds to the list of haunted places in Pune.
