In a significant development, six persons caught by the locals in Lar area of Ganderbal district of central Kashmir on late Friday night were handed over to the police without any harm.

SHO Lar Nissar Ahmed told Greater Kashmir that six suspected braid-choppers were caught by people in Lar while roaming suspiciously in Repora village late Friday night.

“The good thing is that the people without taking law and order into their own hands called the police immediately and handed them over,” he said.

On enquiring, the police officer said that the detained people were in Lar to meet a girl and were not braid choppers. They hailed from neighbouring Saderkot area of Bandipora district.

SSP Ganderbal Fayaz Ahmed Line appreciated the locals for their cooperation and showing maturity by handing over the suspected braid choppers to police without causing any harm to them.

He urged the people to follow the same and cooperate with police in such situations.
