CHENNAI: The Chennai police have submitted before the Madras High Court that only a total ban on kite flying, selling of kites and ‘maanja' (glass coated) threads for flying kites will be a permanent remedy to put an end to the menace.
In his counter to a public interest litigation petition by R.Gobika of George Town, Police Commissioner J.K. Tripathy said flying kites had become hazardous to the public.
The police were initiating action against erring persons under the City Police Act. The First Bench consisting of Chief Justice M.Y.Eqbal and Justice T.S.Sivagnanam has admitted the petition.
