Srinagar, October 19 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Private Schools Association of Kashmir (PSAK) has expressed concern over the unabated braid chopping incidents happening in the Valley which has created fear psychosis among students at all levels in schools, colleges, universities and coaching centres.

The PSAK President, G N War in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the incidents happening in almost each and every district had affected the students both physically and mentally. “Girl students fear to come to school, boys fear to venture into outside areas as the former might be victim of braid chopping and later getting accused of such incidents by mobs, he added.

He said both academics and extra-curricular activities stand affected as it has disturbed the student community entirely. “Even the discussions and normal talk in educational institutions start and end with braid chopping incidents,” he said.

He said, “Our biggest victims have been students at coaching centres. These students both boys and girls used to come for tuition early morning and leave late evening, but now they fear to attend classes. Girls and their parents don’t want to take any risk and fear they may be their next target,” said G N Var.
