Srinagar: The mysterious braid choppers appeared in Batamaloo where they sprayed some substance on a woman, cut her hair and fled.

The woman, identified as Bilqueis, is a resident of Moominabad. The mother of two does not remember much other than they blew some powder towards her and she fell unconscious. However, she remembers the choppers were hooded. She has actually said they wore Abhaya. She said they had only their eyes open, rest was shielded.

This led to massive protest in the area. Mulzim Kou Peash Karoo was one of the slogans. They were shouting anti-police slogans as well.

Earlier in the day, a young lady in Chewdara (Budgam) suffered a haircut at the hands of the mysterious hair-cutters. Identified as Nageena, she was alone at home. It was a neighbour who found the woman unconscious with chopped braid. Her family was busy in the harvest.

The braid cutting crisis is getting mysterious and tense with every passing day. Though the police have set up help lines and doubled up the reward to Rs 6 lakh, there are not any clear answers on this issue. The government at all levels have been issuing statements but the crisis is getting complicated.
