Karachi Commissioner Muhammad Saleem Rajpoot Saturday imposed a ban on the sales and flying of kites in the metropolitan after several suffered serious injuries due to loose kite strings, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The making, sale and flying of kites has been banned under Section 144 CrPC across the city from March 30 till May 29.

The move came amid the use of dangerous metal strings in kite flying that raised serious risks to the lives of the citizens, the Karachi Commission said.

The loose metal strings used in kite flying have resulted in injuries to the city dwellers in recent days which prompted the authorities to ban the practice. On March 27, a Karachi youth was hospitalised after he suffered a serious injury due to a loose kite string in the Azizabad area. In a statement, the police said the 20-year-old man, identified as Awais, was riding a motorbike when he was tangled in kite string in Azizabad. The police said he was shifted to a hospital where his condition was said to be out of danger.

A day earlier, A minor boy was rushed to the hospital after sustaining injuries from a loose kite string while riding a motorcycle with his father in the Nazimabad area.
