A fresh braid-chopping incident has emerged in Jamia Nagar, according to AAP youth leader Mahmood Ahmed. He told OT.COM that he has come to know about the incident from reliable sources that such incidents have taken place in two houses in Batla House.
However, the family is unwilling to speak to the media. YouTuber Wasi Imam, who was the first journalist, to film first incident of braid chopping in the locality, told OT.COM that he too came to know about these two incidents two days ago. He said one of his journalist friends even tried to contact the family to get to the depth to the story but failed to get any response as the people are unwilling to discuss the matter.
In earlier, incident, OT.COM had reported that how police were called by a resident in Joga Bai. In that incident it was claimed that the victim was a schoolgirl and her braid was cut off when she was sleeping. It was only her mother who found about the incident and later informed other family members.
No police complaint has been filed in these cases yet. However, in earlier case the hair was taken for test. The result is yet not known.
OT.COM could not ascertain the claims in these new cases.
Braid chopping cases have surfaced a few days ago and have grabbed headlines. Moreover, some cases have been found to be untrue. In one such case in Noida it was known that the girl cut her hair to get attention. Police too have alerted residents urging them not to get carried away with rumours.
