Kite-string claims another life in Lahore
A TV grab.
Police reached the spot and took the body of Manzoor in custody and started further investigation. Lahore police said the deceased was 35 to 40 years old.
Additional IG of Punjab also sought a report from Superintendent Police (Cantt) on the incident.
The kite-flying incidents have not been stopped in the metropolis despite a ban by authorities and multiple cases were reported in recent months where citizens got hurt by metallic strings.
Earlier in March, a Dyal Singh College teacher named Aftab Ahmad died when a metallic kite string ran across his neck near Ichhra on Ferozepur Road when he was on his way to the college in the morning.
