Ridhima Gupta ByExpress News ServiceHYDERABAD: With just days left for Sankranti festival, the sale of Chinese manja continues in Hyderabad, despite a ban on the deadly glass-coated thread.
The Chinese manja, which is made of nylon or synthetic thread is treated with glass and metal to make it sharper.
Unlike the cotton thread, it does not break easily, but cuts through the skin.
Another shopkeeper said that this manja, is available in the market by the brand name, ‘Mono gold’ and 'Mono kite'.
He said, "The illegal sale of this manja affects those shopkeepers who do not flout norms, as customers go for cheaper manja."
