Start by reading the docs for Options, with special attention to the
effect of "+" and "-" options.  What you have makes no sense.

Probably what you want is

<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks Includes Indexes

<Directory  /usr/local/etc/httpd/htdocs/u/cs/khj>
Options -Indexes

But that doesn't appear to be the main problem.  So, some other things to

1. Are you ABSOLUTELY SURE that you are pointing to the right directory,
and there are no symlinks or other funky things going on?

2. Are you sure you don't have any <Location> sections or later
<Directory> sections overriding this configuration with another Options

3. Have you restarted the server after making changes?
