“If anyone can prove existence of ghosts or justify superstitious practices, I will reward that person with Rs 50,000,” said Kulange.
Appealing everyone to refrain from superstitious practices, the Ganjam collector also asked to provide information on people who practice witchcraft so that action can be taken against them.
