This question already has an answer here:

If there is an untimely death of a person before a person is scheduled to die or if a person commits suicide before he is scheduled to die, does he become a ghost and has to live as a ghost until his time arrives to go to heaven or hell? And after heaven or hell, does he enter into a new life?

  • Ghosts are formed generally due to unfulfilled desires. I think death is predestined to us whatever it is, natural or unnatural. It is said our life on this earth has fixed no. of breaths. – The Destroyer Nov 29 '15 at 5:32

    If someone becomes a ghost, it is not for a limited period post which they get liberated and go to heaven/hell. A ghost's lifetime is undefined/virtually infinite. One way to liberate a ghost is to do bhagavata saptaha parayana in their name. The ghost must listen to the paranaya. – user1195 Nov 29 '15 at 7:28
