hahaha! i knew something was fishy yeah you did get some serious and concerning reactions from other folks though.

hope such incident never happens to you in reality buddy.nevertheless delhi somehow has always been notorious to venture out late nights(i might be generalizing here though)

p.s: others still dont seem to get it ,it was a prank from your end .more concerning comments pouring in.lol

Anybody in their right senses will fall in this so-called trap. Before many others come and pour their hearts out. Mods, request you to close this thread

For a moment there I thought it was straight from RGV's drawer. Nevertheless, spine chilling

Scary experience!! Felt as it happened to me. And the narration really looked like a script for a thriller movie. Thank god you are safe.

Thanks that now I realized the importance of central locking. I will make sure the doors closed all the time in unknown areas.

Please accept my apologies for this. I thought it wasn't playing with anyone so there was no harm.

Bad humour.

I was fooled too, but having been a victim of an attempted mugging incident. I dont really find it funny.

Well, you've certainly justified the second part of your handle as in "writer"! Ever considered writing potboilers?

Hey hey wait don't close it yet. I have a really horrifying experience to tell. Today morning @7:30 I went to the HDFC ATM on Bannerghatta road only to find my balance a few hundred rupees. I called up the IVR, that too confirmed the same balance. I checked online, and find the correct balance with salary credited. I call up the executive and she cites 'problems in server'. It fits on this forum coz I travelled to the ATM on the road using a transport vehicle.

I guess this was the bank's way of wishing its customers 'HAppy April Fool's Day'.

This thread is in very bad taste sir. Such incidents are known to happen - I hope you don't find yourself in something similar one day.
