Was it really a ghost who Vijay Singh befooled? Who do you think it was?
No, I don’t think that it was really a ghost whom Vijay Singh befooled. The storyline speaks of this particular ghost as if it was just a regular person, while the activities and the characteristics of the ghosts are expected to be different.
It is very likely that it was just a robber posing as a ghost in order to loot those passing through the desert.
