Two children were killed in separate accidents in the capital late Monday night after suffering cuts to the neck because of a manjha, or kite string.

Both children, three-year-old Sanchi Goyal and four-year-old Harry, were sticking their head out of the sunroof of their car.

Goyal was standing in her mother’s lap with her head out of the sunroof when a manjha hanging from an overhead wire got entangled around her neck in Rani Bagh area. The family was on their way home from a movie.

Harry’s family was returning home from a mall when the accident took place in Tilak Nagar area.
