Police of three cities including Delhi police are looking for a gang of three men allegedly cutting braids of females. This gang allegedly enters into a house where females are alone or with kids. Delhi police has filed two cases for outraging the modesty of a woman against three men after they captured in a camera. Similarly, cases of chopping of braids have also reported in Gurugram, Mewat and Palwal. Initial investigation has revealed that three men entered into Delhi after committing a crime in Palwal and Mewat. On 25th a lady made a PCR call claiming that she fell unconscious after some unknown person cut her braid.

After that, Gurgram Police on Saturday also got a call from a lady that someone has cut her braids when she was at home. Just after a day of Gurugram incident, Delhi police once again got a call from a woman claiming that unknown person has chopped her braids. “These incidents happened in the village area of outer Delhi. Women were at their home when some unknown person came and cut their braids. It has also found that all incidents have happened in areas connected to Outer Delhi linked to Haryana. Some people are trying to create panic among women and villagers,” a senior police official investigating the case said.

“FIRs has been registered in this connection and investigations were being taken up. We have found three men suspiciously roaming in the area where incidents have taken place,” Surender Kumar DCP South-West said. Meanwhile, people residing in villages of south-west Delhi have decided to keep a check all the time and asked the females not to remain alone even during day time. Also, cops have deployed extra PCR vans and staff to keep a check on outsiders roaming in villages.
