A 26-year-old doctor riding a two-wheeler died after her throat got slit by manja (abrasive string) of a kite in Pune’s Bhosari area Sunday, the police said.
The incident occurred when Dr Krupali Nikam’s two-wheeler reached the Nashik phata flyover, a police official said.
“Nikam’s throat got slit due to sharpness of manja. She fell on the road and started bleeding profusely. She was rushed to a private hospital but was declared dead by doctors,” he said.
The woman was a resident of Pimple Saudagar area in neighbouring Pimpri Chinchwad township.
