Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh): Six-year-old Sahiba’s throat was slit by Chinese manjha, when she was returning from school with her father on a bike in Kotwali police station area.
Thankfully, her father Gulsher stopped the bike as soon as the Chinese manjha encircled her neck and later rushed her to a hospital. Gulsher said that he was returning home from St Meera Girls School Nijatpura when the incident took place. The girl was discharged after first aid from district hospital.
For the last two days, district administration has been running a drive against Chinese Manjha (a thread used to fly kites) sellers. They have demolished houses of sellers. However, all this has failed to deter the sellers.
Meanwhile, Kalam Sarvadharma Society has prepared posters to make people aware of the ill-effects of Chinese Manjha. These posters will be put on bridges. The poster was released by Cabinet Minister Mohan Yadav. The poster has the message "Bridge par dor se Bache, apni swayam ki Suraksha khud kare".
