    New Delhi (CNN)Sharp kite strings have killed three people in
    India in a single day, according to police.

    A 4-year-old boy had his throat slit while he was looking out of
    a car's sunroof and a 22-year-old man received a lethal cut on
    his neck while riding a motorbike on August 15, according to
    Pushpendra Kumar, the deputy commissioner of the West Delhi

    The same day, a 3-year-old girl looking out the sunroof was
    strangled by a kite string which cut her neck, according to a
    deputy commissioner of North West Delhi Police.

    All three were killed by Manja, a type of kite string made with

    Officials in Delhi are now moving to ban any sharp kite strings.

    An Indian youth prepares "manja," a strong string coated with
    powdered glass or other abrasives and used to fly kites, in
    Allahabad on April 9, 2013.

    "Chinese manja and other kite flying thread which is made of
    glass, sharp material is dangerous," Manish Sisodia, Delhi's
    deputy chief minister, said in a tweet. "Safety of our citizens
    is non-negotiable."

    Nikunja Sharma, the government liaison for the People for the
    Ethical Treatment of Animals, is supportive of the ban as manjas
    can injure animals.

    According to Sharma, a bird hospital in Old Delhi have treated
    500 birds in the past few days because of the kite thread.

    There's usually a spike around India's Independence day because
    people like to fly kites in celebration.

    An Indian volunteer holds a pigeon who sustained injuries from
    "manja" (a strong string coated with powdered glass or other
    abrasives used to fly kites) on Makar Sankranti in Mumbai on
    January 14, 2013.

    "They will ban it for sure," he said.

    Put that pigeon on the ground and grind a heel on it. Nobody
    gives a damn about pigeons.
