In wake of increasing braid-chopping incidents in Jammu and Kashmir, the demand for CCTV cameras has surged in the state.
"Ever since braid-chopping incidents have been reported, the demand for our products has increased, have installed them in a lot of homes," CCTV dealer in Srinagar said.
Earlier, Director General of Police (DGP) Dr S P Vaid in October said that in Kashmir, there were 72 cases reported of people beating up innocents on the suspicion of them being braid-choppers and cases would be registered against all those who took law into their own hands.
He had also said if needed, those accused of beating up the innocent would be slapped with Public Safety Act (PSA), but no innocent person being branded as braid-chopper by the public on suspicion would be booked.

"In 72 cases (of braid chopping), people took law into their own hands and beat up the innocent (in Kashmir Valley)", Vaid told PTI.
Asserting that FIRs would be lodged in all the 72 cases, he said, "The police will deal with miscreants sternly".
