SRINAGAR: There is a famous Kashmiri saying: Peereh Tateah Karzeam Yaeari, Yeti Paneh Aeseakh Durbudar. In English, it means, ‘my Peer, help me (at a junction) where you yourself will be wandering’.

Reports by a local news gatherer, KNO said that a female faith healer Raasiya Banoo lived in the Badragund area of Qazigund. The wife of Manzoor Ahmad Najar, the God-fearing lady, was a faith healer as well.

Police have sent a team and investigations have started.

In Agroo village, a lady was busy working in her fields when somebody took her by surprise, left her unconscious and attempted cutting her middle finger because of the gold. He also attempts to slice away her ear lobe because of the jewellery.
