The bizarre incident, which took place in MP Nagar locality, has both confused and stunned everyone

Close on the heels of braid chopping incidents reported across Madhya Pradesh, a similar incident was reported in the State capital on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday and this time, a teen girl, student of class X, fell victim to a hair-chop.

The bizarre incident, which took place in MP Nagar locality, has both confused and stunned everyone. However, the matter was not reported with the police till the filing of report.

According to information, victim 17-year-old girl—Maya Khare, resides at Rajeev Nagar slum area in front of EOW office in Arera Hills under MP Nagar police station. She is a student of class X and third child among four daughters of her father Jagdeesh Khare, who is working as a daily wages employee in Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC).

The incident took place on intervening night of Friday and Saturday when Maya was asleep with her sisters Lata, Sanjana and Sapna at her home. At around 2:30 am, a youth of their locality reached their house and informed Jagdeesh that he has spotted Maya going toward Paryawas Bhavan building, after which, the worried family members were about to start search for her.

However, in the meantime, Maya herself returned home and complained about piercing headache and told that she remembers nothing about how she reached there. When family members spotted her hair was chopped off from forehead and had lost a portion of her long tresses, Maya told that a tall man with long beard took her there. However, family members couldn’t understand that how did that man manage to enter their house.

Sub-Inspector G S Parihar, with charge of MP Nagar police station as SHO Sanjay Bais is out of station, while talking to ‘The Hitavada’, said that soon after the incident, victim’s mother Mangi Bai and father Jagdeesh Khare took Maya to their native town in Narsinghgarh suspecting evil spirit behind it.

Till now, the matter hasn’t been reported at the police station and once the girl and her family members would return to Bhopal, we would interrogate them regarding the incident and further investigation would be carried out based on their statements.
