What began as talk in Balia-Ghazipur belt in eastern Uttar Pradesh became a dread psychosis that grasped the state. In June 2002 a couple of residents were chomped by a light-producing element. The “unidentified flying article” was named the Muhnochwa (confront scratcher).
Muhnochwa’s flight quickly gone over 30 areas in Balia, Ghazipur, Mau, Chandauli, Varanasi, Allahabad, Mirzapur, Sultanpur, Pratapgarh, Hardoi, and Sitapur, and its exploited folks, who endured genuine scratches and wounds on the face and arms, numbered in hundreds.More threatening than the muhnochwa was the dread it made. A resident executed his pooch when he awakened throughout the evening to get something licking his face. Another began beating his dad, confusing him with the muhnochwa around night time.
The primary reports of assaults by the muhnochwa (truly, one thing that scratches the face) originated from rustic regions in Mirzapur area, however, the genuine fury started when adjacent municipality started asserting comparative assaults.As news of the strange flying face-scratcher spread, individuals started requesting better assurance from police, which thus started brutality. Different reports guaranteed that unnerved residents have executed individuals associated with being a muhnochwa.
