Jammu : Entry of labourers, strangers banned in Doda as ‘mysterious’ braid chopping incidents continue

DODA, Sep 19 : Authorities in Gandoh tehsil of Doda district in Chenab valley have temporarily banned the entry of outside labourers and the gathering of more than five persons by imposing the Section 144 to “prevent” braid-chopping incidents in the area.

Sub-divisional magistrate, Gandoh Dil Mir Choudhary ordered an immediate two-month ban on the entry of outside labourers and strangers and also directed police to lodge FIR and investigate the braid chopping incidents in the area.

This has led to shortage of these products in the market. People throng to priests and religious leaders for protection from such incidents, who guide them to tie some thread, yellow mustard seeds or other things which will apparently protect them from braid-cutting.
