A 7-year-old boy and a youth were killed in two different incidents related to kite-flying in the district.
7-year-old Vijendra’s throat was slit by a kite’s Chinese string while he was riding with his uncle at Tungaroad in Bassi, a suburban town in Jaipur, police said.
The boy was rushed to the hospital but succumbed to injury due to excessive bleeding, they said.
In another incident, Kundan Sharma (22) was beaten to death by three accused, including a woman over kite-flying dispute at Suraya Nagar here yesterday, Additional SP-West Karan Sharma said.
Kundan and his colleagues had gone to a field to party but had an altercation with a few boys who were flying kites nearby, he said.
The victim was allegedly beaten up by Suneel and Dharamchand along with their mother, ASP said, adding that Kundan succumbed to his injuries at the hospital.
No arrest has been made in this connection, police said, adding that counter FIRs have been filed.
Sharma said that the Kardhan Police was probing the case, adding that the accused would be arrested at the earliest after the initial probe.
The bodies of both Vijendra and Kundan were handed over to their respective relatives after postmortem, police said.
Meanwhile, the Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation (JMRC) has asked the public, especially kids, to avoid flying kites near Chandpole Railway station area due to low-hanging electric lines which could cause electrocution.
Jaipur district collector has also issued a warning on selling of China-made ‘manjha’ (string/dor) in the market.
