A 26-year-old woman who was injured as manja — a string used to fly kites that has powdered glass applied on it — slashed through her neck on Sunday evening, died at a hospital later in the day. The deceased has been identified as Krupali Nikam, a medical practitioner. The incident took place at Nashik Phata flyover when Nikam was on her way to Bhosari for work on her two-wheeler.
Police said Nikam was taken to a hospital immediately after the incident. But she passed away before she could be treated. The local police have launched a probe in the case. Inspector A H Bhosale confirmed the incident and said that an offence will be registered after an investigation in the case.
