How did the people you know describe the kushtaka they saw?
That they look identical to real people that they know....that the "people" they saw wouldn't come out of the forest and beckoned them to come into the forest urgently...that the "people" caused the dog with them to growl and act scared yet protective at the same time...that the "people" wouldn't come close to the dog
one experience by someone I know recounts how he was walking one afternoon on a village road by himself...he was a teenager...and he saw his older brother come to the edge of the forest and urgently beckon him to come into the forest with him....his brother even held up a big baggie of marijuana to entice him into the forest...but he got creeped out and made an excuse to leave and go back and when he got home, just a short ways away, he told his mom and it turns out his brother had been in the shower the whole time this was happening...weird!!
