Allahabad High court on 19 November 2015 ordered to ban the manufacturing and sale of Chinese thread (Chinese manjha) across Uttar Pradesh. The thread is a highly abrasive type of nylon string that is used during flying kites.

A division bench, comprising Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice Yashwant Verma, passed the order on a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by one Anurag Mishra. The applicant had drawn the court's attention towards a number of incidents in the city wherein people had received serious injuries caused by the razor-sharp nylon string coated with glass.


While passing the order the bench asked the Principal home secretary of state to ensure the implementation of court order. The bench observed that this thread is very dangerous for both human and birds in the sky.

Earlier on 18 November 2015, the same bench of Allahabad High court ordered Uttar Pradesh government to ban the use of polythene across the state by 31 December 2015. The order came after hearing a PIL filed by Ashok Kumar who had sought the courts intervention for improving public sanitation in the city of Allahabad.
