KULGAM: A team of five doctors from Government Medical College (GMC) Srinagar on Sunday visited District Hospital Kulgam to interact with victims of braid-chopping. The team interacted with 18 victims. The purpose of the visit was to provide psychiatric counselling to the victims so that they can be taken out of post-trauma stress at the earliest.
The doctors advised the families of the victims to console them so that they are able to lead a normal life. They also advised the attendants to engage the victims in other chores so that they can recuperate in the shortest possible time from the psychological trauma.
The Deputy Commissioner Kulgam said that a Special Investigation Composite Team has already been constituted to investigate cases of braid-chopping.
The team of doctors will submit a report to the higher authorities for perusal and corrective measures.
The team of doctors was accompanied by Deputy Commissioner Kulgam, Talat Parvez Rohella, the Chief Medical Officer, the Medical Superintendent of the District Hospital, and other officers.
