A 10-year-old boy identified as Ved Krishna Shahu from Jaripatka area in Nagpur died after Nylon Manja slit his throat. Ved’s respiratory tract and blood vessels were cut by the manja. He succumbed to the injury on January 15 morning in a hospital.
What exactly happened:
Ved was on a scooter with his dad, going back home, when the incident happened. He wanted to have dabeli, hence the father-son duo stopped to buy some, following which Ved switched position and was now standing on the footrest in front of his father with dabeli in his hands.
As the duo hit the cement road near Bhim Chowk, a nylon manja descended upon them. Krishna (father) managed to grab the manja in air but it was stretched tight from the other side. Krishna’s left palm got injured while Ved’s neck was deeply cut.
Ved who was now bleeding profusely, was rushed to Janta hospital in Jaripatka, then was shifted to Alexis Multispecialty Hospital and finally to Nelson Hospital.
Krishna owns a grocery shop, Ved was the younger of two brothers. Reportedly, bleeding did not stop even after 25 stitches and the family lost time as hospitals kept referring Ved to other hospitals for better care.
Nylon Manja is banned. Police have seized material worth ₹35 lakh, still Ved died and people got injured due to the manja this year.
