Raising slogans against the state government and police, the demonstrators blocked the main road demanded immediate arrest of all those who are behind the braid chopping in the valley. Alleging that police was not serious to unfold the mystery behind the braid chopping, the demonstrators said that when there was a bank robbery in south Kashmir yesterday within hours police claimed to have identified the Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) militants the loot.
