Braid chopping: DIG appeals people to cooperate with police

Srinagar, Oct 6 (UNI) Claiming that the alleged braid choppers handed over to police by locals were found to be innocent, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police, central Kashmir, Ghulam Hassan Bhat today appealed to the general public to cooperate with them to solve the mystery behind such incidents.

“We are unable to reach to a conclusion due to lack of support from public and the families of the victims,” Mr Bhat told reports here during a press conference.

The DIG said although there have been no formal complaints into the braid chopping incidents from the victims; police has filed the cases after taking cognizance of the reports.

He said almost 90 per cent of the braids chopping cases have taken place inside closed rooms.
“In these cases we need to cooperation of the general public, the victim and their family members to solve such incidents,” he said.

Giving details, he said that 23 cases, all from central Kashmir, have been registered and investigation is underway in all the cases.

“Except a maid who confessed to chopping off the braid of a girl at Gulberg Colony in Srinagar following alleged harassment of the family, all the alleged braid choppers handed over to the police were found to have no link with such incidents,” he said.

The maid has been arrested, he added.

The DIG said the police department has constituted a special team headed by a lady inspector entrusted the job of examining victims and investigating the case.

Asserting the law and order situations resulting from braid chopping incidents have prevented the police department in examining the cases, the DIG appealed the people to cooperate and let the police investigate the incidents properly.

The DIG also requested the media fraternity to report incidents based on true facts and after proper verification.
