Man killed during protest against alleged braid-chopping in Anantnag

Man killed during protest against alleged braid-chopping in Anantnag”

However, so far the police and the authorities have been clueless. Almost 50 incidents of braid-chopping instances have been reported from Jammu and Kashmir alone. "But the Chief Minister has already taken the necessary steps over the matter", he said.

On Thursday, the police during investigation of a complaint of "braid-chopping" in the Badhran village of Anantnag found that the 16-year-old girl had "cooked up" the story of her "braid-chopping".

Vigilantes also beat up three people in Srinagar after mistaking them for braid-choppers, a police spokesman said. "Police had to intervene to rescue him from the frenzied mob", the spokesman said.

Opposition NC MLA from Habba Kadal constituency, Shameema Firdous said she is very disappointed over failure of police in tracing the braid choppers.

The top separatist leaders Syed Alishah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik had given call for massive protests across the valley after the Friday prayers, against the incidents of "braid-chopping". "How is it possible that pave failed to trace the braid choppers", she said.

Vigilante groups have started patrolling neighbourhoods in a bid to prevent such incidents. Administration must gear up itself to book these anti-social elements.

MLA Khansahib, Hakeem Mohammad Yaseen termed these incidents as insult to the respect of the womanhood and castigated the PDP-BJP coalition government for its failure to provide security to the people of the state.
