Srinagar: Police on Saturday claimed to have solved an alleged braid chopping case that had occurred in Chanpora area in the outskirts of Srinagar city.
According to a police spokesman, police station Sadder received an information that a braid chopping incident has occurred in Chanapora area on Friday.
Police said that Wasim Yousuf Bhat resident of Roselane Colony alleged that braid of his wife, identified as Aasia has been chopped by some unknown person after spraying some substance on her face when she was near the washroom in their compound.
Consequently, the ‘victim’ was immediately shifted to hospital and police also rushed to the hospital and upon questioning him several facts surfaced, the spokesman said.

Police claims that the doctors have confirmed that no spray has been used on the victim and added that the doctors also denied the claims of the victim’ s father in law that she was strangulated and that there was no injury mark on the victim and said that the victim has delivered a baby girl recently.
“Clinical psychologists suggest that it can be a case of postpartum depression-a condition which occurs after the delivery of baby to a mother. The depression remains intense for the first 6 months post delivery. Mother finds it difficult to cope up with new additional responsibilities. She has sleepless nights, mood swings and her biological clock gets disturbed” the police statement quoting medical experts said.
The statement further said in this particular case that the mother of the victim has recently expired and her mother in law has also expired both of whom are a big support to a new mother and husband due to his own engagements is unable to share the responsibilities.
“All this aggravated her condition which led her to resort to the said act” the statement added.
Police said that she is now getting all attention and sympathy from her family members.
