Srinagar, Oct 04: Calling for an immediate end to the mysterious braid chopping incidents, Jammu and Kashmir State Employees Working Women Association (JKSEWWA), an amalgam of women employees working in different departments Wednesday termed the ‘failure’ of administration in tracing the braid choppers as ‘unfortunate’.
According to the KNS correspondent, Abida Hassan Var, chairperson of the newly formed Association while addressing a presser here said it is unfortunate that the Police department had announced reward for the credible information regarding the braid choppers.
