Banned Chinese kite manjha claims biker's life in Delhi
The Chinese manjha used in kite flying is coated with glass and metal pieces to give additional strength so that it doesn't break. When a biker hits a tense manjha at high speed, it cuts his body. Such accidents have become common around Independence Day when children fly kites as part of the celebrations. The most likely victims are two-wheelers as they are exposed to the danger when they hit the strings at great speed.

NEW DELHI, July 28: The Chinese manjha has killed a biker in Delhi. The 30-year old was killed after his throat was slit by a kite string, the Chinese manjha, while driving on Haiderpur Flyover in the Capital on Tuesday. He died of bleeding. The victim was identified as Sumit Ranga, a resident of Sector 3 in Rohini.

Passersby who saw him lying in a pool of blood took him to Saroj Hospital where he was declared dead. The body was handed over to his relatives after post-mortem examination.

Sumit was returning home after meeting friends when he got entangled in the manjha. He ran a hardware store in Burari.

The Chinese manjha is coated with glass and metal particles for strength and is sharp. Such accidents have become common around Independence Day when children fly kites as part of the celebrations. The most likely victims are two-wheelers as they are exposed to the danger and hit the strings at great speed.

The Chinese manjha is illegal as it is banned but still it is sold in the markets. Only cotton threads are permissible. It is in demand because it does not break easily. The punishment for keeping or selling Chinee manjha is Rs 1 lakh fine and/or imprisonment for five years.

Police could not say from where the manjha came. A case has been registered at the Maurya Enclave police station and an inquiry has been ordered into the incident.
