Hatpipliya (Madhya Pradesh): Locals on Sunday handed over a memorandum, addressed to local Tehsildar Satyendra Berwa, to Naib Tehsildar Ruchi Goyal demanding ban on sale and purchase of Chinese manjha (kite string) across the town. Locals claimed that sale of Chinese manjha continued unabated in Hatpipliya flouting district administration’s ban on its sale, purchase and hoarding.

On December 10, Dharmendra Barediya, (35) of Chhatipura (ward no 8), was injured after his throat was slit by Chinese manja near Masih hospital on Chhapra road on December 10. He later received 27 stitches in the neck.

Several such incidents caused by Chinese manjha have been reported in the past too.
