Delhi government bans Chinese ‘maanjha’ in the capital

0

Delhi government has banned Chinese maanjha in the national capital, reported ANI.

Kejriwal government’s decision came after a recent death of a 28-year-old in East Delhi whose throat was slit by such a thread while he was riding a motorbike.

Some states have already banned Chinese maanjha, while the Delhi government, as reported by Times of India, had drafted a notification for the ban and sent it to LG Najeeb Jung for his approval.

The Kejriwal government’s notification was in response to a plea filed by one Zulfiquar Hussain, who alleged that the victims of this synthetic thread were no longer just birds, “but now humans are also under threat.”
