It can’t get weird than this. Even as the so-called mysterious hair-chopping incidents continue to be reported from several parts of the country, people living in Bihar’s village Khanwa in Nawada district claim to have solved the mystery.
According to a report by Hindi daily Prabhat Khabar, the villagers have caught an insect, which, they claim, easily chop women’s hair. Not only this, the villagers have also asked in-charge of Rajauli subdivision Shambusharan Pandey and BDO of Narhat, Umesh Kumar Singh, to probe the so-called ‘hair-chopping insect’.
Pandey told the daily that many women have taken ill because of hair-chopping incidents. Some people are afraid because of superstition. Pandey said the insect could be poisonous.
The report said that women fall unconscious when the insect chops their hair. According to the report, civil surgeon of Nawada, Dr Srinath Prasad, has asked medical in-charge of Narhat, Dr Ram Kumar, to find the truth about the insect.
Prabhat Khabar has also uploaded a video made by villagers on Youtube, showing the said insect chopping hair.
