    As an observant Sikh, 15-year-old Vacher Harpal had never had his hair cut until an older teenager at his high school chopped it off in what authorities are calling a hate crime. The older youth, Umair Ahmed, 17, violated Harpal's religious beliefs by forcibly removing the sobbing victim's turban and cutting his waist-length locks in a Queens high school bathroom, authorities said.
