Budgam: The braid-chopping incidents left police clueless in central Budgam district as panic gripped the area following two incidents in Hanjigund village of Chadoora.
While one incident of braid cutting involving an old aged woman identified as Zubaida Begum took place late on Wednesday night, another such incident occurred at the same village when Raja Begum(30) was attacked. The victims were taken to hospital as they fell unconscious.
Pointing out that police are taking suo motto cognizance of these cases after victims report at hospitals, senior police officials said that they have the samples of hair cut under mysterious circumstances and will sent them to forensic science laboratory (FSL). They said the reasons behind braid cutting are still unknown.
“No one has so far seen any person suspected to be behind such incidents,” said Farooq Ahmad, DSP Chrar-e-sharief.
Meanwhile, in the absence of any reasonable logic coming from the administration or the police behind cutting of braid under mysterious circumstances people are afraid.
