The Chairman of Hurriyat forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in his statement said occupation authorities and police are adopting a lackadaisical approach in curbing rising incidents of braid-chopping.
He said the rumour had spread like a "wild fire" last evening. "People got emotional and started pelting stones at security forces establishments and vehicles", a police spokesman said.
"It was planned to generate a potential for civil unrest", he said.
In another case, the police arrested two people in connection with rumour-mongering that led to the beating up of a group of rag-pickers in Lasjan area of the city on October 9.
Jammu and Kashmir police has formed a special investigation team to crack the cases.
