High Court Seeks 'Comprehensive Report' From Delhi Police On Sale And Supply Of Banned Chinese Manjha In National Capital

In a recent order released on Thursday, the court mandated the Delhi Police to persist in their efforts to curb the sale of Chinese manjha during the approaching Independence Day season, which sees increased kite-flying activities.

The court’s attention was drawn to four petitions filed by families who suffered losses or injuries due to Chinese manjha, particularly while riding motorcycles. These petitioners sought both corrective actions and compensation from the relevant authorities.

A court order dated August 8 detailed that the police had undertaken significant steps to enforce the ban on stockpiling, sale, storage, and production of the banned thread. Regular legal actions have been initiated as necessary. A pivotal development was a meeting convened with wholesale kite and manjha dealers. During the meeting, dealers were informed of the comprehensive prohibition on kite-flying thread made from synthetic materials like nylon or plastic, commonly known as Chinese manjha. They were further directed to provide information regarding any vendors engaging in the sale of the prohibited product.
