Thrissur: Reports have been surfacing that a mysterious creature is causing a lot of panic among the locals living in Karikkad, North Karikkad, Villannur, Aruvayi and Kongannur regions.
Many people have seen the mysterious creature moving around in the region and some think it can be a man.
The creature has a time frame of its own, it appears on rooftops and in the front yards of houses after 9 pm.
As far as locals are concerned, the creature is dark in shape which is not clearly visible due to darkness. It usually makes noise by knocking on the doors and windows of houses.
People have been waiting for the last four days to see what this creature is. But it is said to be exceptionally quick as it jumps over walls and moves from one house to another in a flash.
Locals are evading the lockdown orders by trying to catch the unknown creature.
A group of locals followed this creature last night but the creature got onto the terrace of a house and then quickly ran away after sliding down the trunk of a mango tree nearby.
Despite all the panic, no incident of theft or attack by the mysterious creature has been reported yet. Locals also doubt if a mentally unstable man is behind all this.
