kite strings kill.. on sun roof ride in Delhi



A three-year-old girl Saanchi Goyal died while returning home with her parents. The girl was looking out of open sunroof of car. Suddenly her neck got slit by a ‘manjha’ as they were passing through Rani Bagh area. There were reports of a four-year-old boy -in separate but bizarrely similar incidents in the city on I-Day.

In another incident, on monday, a 22-year-old motorcycle rider died his neck got entangled in the kite string in west Delhi’s Mianwali Nagar area.

Delhi government has banned the Chinese thread after it killed while kite flying festival in different incidents.

The move comes after Independence Day, when kite flying is practiced throughout the city of Delhi. The sharp string coated with metal and glass, makes it sharper.This has often caused deaths of flying birds in the sky.

‘People for Ethical Treatment of Animals’, an NGO for animals had earlier filed a petition with the National Green Tribunal demanding an immediate ban on use of the string ahead of Independence Day on August 15.
