BULANDSHAHR: Four fresh incidents of chopping of women's braids were reported from different parts of the district here in the past 24 hours, police said today.

Two cases of braid chopping were reported from Younuspur village where Bilkish (45) and Jaishree (24) claimed that their plaits were cut off, SP (City) Praveen Ranjan said.

A similar case has also been reported in Salempur Jat village where a 45-year-old woman claimed that her braid was chopped off, the officer said.

In Khurja town here, a class ninth student while returning from her tuition this morning became another victim of braid chopping, Ranjan said.

He said the police have not yet received any written complaint related to these incidents. "This is an organised propaganda," the SP added.

Similar cases have been reported in neighbouring states in the past couple of days.
