Panic in villages over hair-cutting 'ghost'

There is a new entrant in the supernatural world in some parts of western Rajasthan and unlike the mythical bogeyman, it’s something that scares not just the kids but their parents as well.

For over a fortnight, district administrations along with the police in western Rajasthan are at their wit’s end trying to solve cases where families have complained that the hair of girls and women are being cut, with no suspect being held so far.

This type of spate tends to happen fairly often, Fortean Times has reported on it over the years, the last round up was about half a year ago if my memory holds.

This is just a common as other body parts being cut off, namely male genitalia.

I've heard of this happening before, only people were cutting the hair to sell it for use in making wigs. Just a thought.

At least 15 incidents of women's braids being mysteriously chopped off have been reported from the villages of the Mewat region in last two weeks, police said today.

These bizzare happenings have left the villagers in panic mode. Most women claimed to have fallen unconscious when their braids were chopped off leading to the villagers blaming godmen, ghosts, witches and "cat-like" creatures.

Police, however, dismissed these claims and said it was the handiwork of anti-social elements.

It's probably just someone with a sexual fetish for female hair. There's a lot stranger out there...

Things have turned ugly -

A 60-year old Dalit woman was allegedly lynched in Agra after villagers thought she was out to cut the hair of sleeping women, the first reported fatality of what appears to be turning into a case of mass hysteria.

It's "The Phantom Head Shaver of Brighton" redux and moved to Dwarka.
