Police on Saturday said that it received information that a braid chopping incident has taken place in Dooru, Islamabad.
In a statement, police said that it reached the spot and found that some hair of Bilal Ahmad Mir son of Ghulam Nabi Mir was cut. The man also reported that his finger was hurt when he tried to get hold of the chopper.
However, during the investigation it was found that the said person who is having allegiance with a political party had tried to create a law & order situation by enacting the drama of hair chopping, police said.
“He managed to muster support by using megaphone as well. Preliminary investigation itself reveals that it was a hoax trying to create a law and order situation,” it added.
The police statement said that it was also found that he had lost his fingers outside the country at his workplace. Police has taken cognizance and registered a case in this regard.
The general public is once again requested not to fell prey of such mischievous tricks being played by some vested interests, it added.
