Suhas Nimhan, Vice President, MNS Kothrud, said, “The use of Chinese nylon manja has been banned for the past two years. However, the manja is still being sold extensively. A woman recently died due to this negligence. There have been many instances where people have been seriously hurt. Around 1,000 birds die every kite season and the government isn’t taking any action.”
