The braid of a young woman was chopped in Chewdara village of Budgam district of Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday.
21-year-old Nageena was alone at her home when the incident took place early today.
*Locals said that unknown persons enquired about the woman’s father Bashir Ahmad before knocking her unconscious.*
“A neighbor found the woman unconscious with a chopped braid,” he said.
The woman’s family members were busy in their paddy fields when the incident happened, they said.
Police have so far been clueless about the dozens of hair cutting incidents that are being reported on daily basis from different parts of the Valley.
Earlier today, police doubled the cash reward on information leading to arrest of braid choppers. “Any person with credible information on braid choppers will be awarded Rs 6 lakh,” said an official.
