He said that the pregnant women should be mentally at ease. “The pregnant women should not take any kind of fear as it could affect the baby in her womb mentally,” he said.
He said though they can’t visit every place here to make people aware about such things.
“The religious scholars in the respective areas should give psycho therapy to the people in this regard so that locals especially the womenfolk would get aware about the precautions and the consequences of fear as well,” the medico said.
Other psychiatrists who refused to named, also ruled out any brain tumour with the use of spray, used prior to the braid chopping.
“It is incorrect that the chemicals used prior to the braid chopping led to the brain tumour. People must not pay heed over these things,” they added.
