2 civilians mistaken for braid choppers thrashed by a mob in Srinagar: Police

Srinagar, Oct 6 (UNI) Jammu and Kashmir Police on Friday claims to have rescued two more civilians, who were thrashed after being mistaken as a braid chopper in this summer capital, Srinagar.
This incident comes on a day when a 70-year-old man mistaken as a braid chopper died this morning after being hit by a brick outside his house in south Kashmir district of Anantnag.
A police spokesperson said that around 1900 hrs, one more frenzied mob caught two civilians on charges of being braid cutters at Chopan Mohalla, Ishber in Srinagar.
“Timely intervened by the police saved the lives of both the civilians, though both were beaten to pulp,” he said.

“People are again requested not to resort to vigilantism and cooperate with police in this matter,” he added.
