Braid Cutting

Not able to cope with ‘additional responsibilities’ after childbirth, woman chopped own braid, claims police

Srinagar: Police on Saturday said that the woman, resident of Chanapora area of Srinagar, who alleged that her braid was chopped did it herself as she was not able to ‘cope up with additional responsibilities’ after the birth of her child.

The police also claimed that after the incident she is getting all the ‘attention and sympathy’ of the family.

In a statement police said, “Clinical psychologists suggest that it can be a case of postpartum depression, a condition which occurs after the delivery of a baby. The depression remains intense for the first 6 months post delivery. Mother finds it difficult to cope up with new additional responsibilities. She has sleepless nights, mood swings and her biological clock gets disturbed.”
