Three motorcycle-borne miscreants cut off the hair of a Sikh teenager in the Baghapurana town of this district leading to tension in the area.

Sukhjit Singh, 15, employed at a cloth merchant shop stated that the trio had waylaid him while he was on his way to have tea at his employer's house and forcibly cut off his hair.

He said he raised an alarm but as the incident took place on a lonely street and nobody came to his rescue.

The young boy alleged that three people confronted him at the Bhagapurana bus stand this morning and chopped off his hair with a sharp-edged weapon.

The youth, with his hair chopped, was taken to the police station by his father, Mr Karamjit Singh, a resident of Mughal Patti, along with the local Gurdwara committee chief, Mr Sadhu Singh. A case was registered against unidentified youths.
