Sharjah, Dec 1, 2016: An Indian man caught a ghostly figure on camera during a desert outing with his family and friends in Sharjah, a local media report said.

Indian Namit Vyas, 33, had clicked about 50 photos with his DSLR camera during the off-roading trip last Friday. Later when checking the photos, he noticed something in one particular frame which was spooky, reported Xpress, a tabloid published by Gulf News, on Wednesday.

Taken around twilight near interchange number 9 on Sharjah’s Al Dhaid Road, the photo was of his wife Anita and their three-year old daughter Illisha, but in the foreground there was ‘someone’ else too.

The picture shows a blurry figure of what appears to be a woman with outstretched arms and feet bent inwards and has been shared many times on social networking site Facebook.

Vyas, who is from Shimla and works as a sales manager in Dubai, said he had taken the photo in ‘auto mode’ and has no idea how the figure appeared in the frame.

“I usually edit all my photos before posting but not this time. The photo you see is completely raw, untouched,” said Vyas. “I still don’t know what was that because I know I had clicked only my wife and daughter in the frame. There was no one else.”

Vyas’s friend Deepanjan Banerjee who was with them, said: “The shadow in the picture is clearly visible but what’s baffling is that there was no one else in the frame except the two. The figure too doesn’t resemble any of the women in our group.”

Dubai-based Anjali Sharma who claims to have spent several nights at ‘haunted’ places across the UAE, said: “Such images are often produced when certain energies we can’t see are caught on camera. This might have been the case here too.”

The tabloid photographers said the image couldn’t have been photoshopped. (IANS)

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
