Vampires attack Indian villages!

For the past few months, the villages of Gundalapatti and Mottangurichi near the Indian town of Dharmapuri have been deserted by 18:00 every day. Villagers are confining themselves indoors and no one goes out after dark for fear of attack from the roaming undead!

As strange as it sounds, the villagers are sure vampires (Ratha Kaatteri) have been attacking their cattle and could harm them as well. For some unknown reason, the cattle have been dying one after the other. Locals have now painted holy "namam" signs outside homes and written messages on doors asking vampires to spare them for the night.

Amused, members of the Indian political party Dravidar Kazhagam have announced 100,000 rupee [almost $2000] reward to anyone catching a vampire in the villages. “It is a big hoax. Anti-socials whose illegal night activities such as bootlegging and liquor brewing have been disturbed are spreading rumours and killing cattle,” said O. Jayaraman, who announced the reward. “Since people are not willing to believe us, we have challenged them with this reward."

The United Nations Paranormal and Supernatural Interdiction Directorate [UNPASID] has condemned the politicians action. "The last thing we need is some amateur Blade or Buffy running around the outskirts of Dharmapuri with silver, garlic, holy water and wooden stakes hoping to bag a leech" said Brigadier “Walrus” Jones, Assistant Director of UNPASID. "This is a job best left to professionals."
