In a mysterious turn of events, several women in Rajasthan, Haryana, UP, MP and Delhi find their braids chopped off after falling unconscious.
At least 15 women’s braids have been chopped off in Mewat district of Haryana after falling unconscious. This bizarre event has left the women shaken and in panic. Most women claim that they see a cat-like creature and fall unconscious after which, when they wake up, they find their braids chopped off.
Sunita Devi, a resident of Gurgaon, on Saturday experienced this incident. She claimed that she saw an elderly man with a trident in his hand and fell to the floor. She said,
While I was preparing dinner in the kitchen, I saw a thin man in a red and yellow outfit on the main entrance of my house. When I went to enquire, I saw he was carrying a trident. I told him to go away. He went away and disappeared only to reappear. When I regained consciousness, I found myself lying on the floor and my braid was chopped off.
However, the house was not ransacked. When the police were informed, they said that they have made a diary entry of the incident and the matter will be probed. Gurgaon Police PRO, Ravinder Kumar, said that the perpetrator has not yet been identified.
Another incident happened at Malhaka village. The victim, Aseena, claimed that she saw a cat-like creature and fell unconscious. Even she had her braid chopped off.
To deal with these incidents, locals have arranged night patrols where the family heads and males of the village patrol during the day and night to protect the women. Ram Mehar Yadav, a resident of Punahana, said,
We have assigned our male members or family heads to patrol on a daily basis in two shifts. They are to stay alert 24×7 in order to combat the gang, animal or ghost, whatever it may be, responsible.
DSP Ferozpur Jhirka Yadram said that they have received complaints from Ferozpur Jhirka’s Santhwari, Satras, Malhaka village, Punahana, Dallawas, Jharpuri, Hamka, Padhen, Shikarpur and Mohammad Pur Aheer.
The police believe that this is a work of a gang of anti-social people who want to create chaos. The police have also advised women to tie their hair in a bun and not make braids.
