By U.Zee

Islamabad: The Islamabad capital police have urged the citizens not to allow their children to violate the kite flying ban imposed by the district administration else strict action in accordance with the law would be taken and the ban violators would be sent behind the bars.
PS Bhara Kahu and PS Sihala police teams arrested two accused namely Jahangir and Hamad Ali involved in kites selling and recovered kites and flying string rolls from their possession. Cases have been registered against the nabbed accused.
Following the special directives of IGP Islamabad Dr. Akbar Nasir Khan, the Islamabad capital police were taking strict action in accordance with the law.
The parents are requested to stop their children from getting involved in such activities as a crackdown against kite sellers and flyers had already been accelerated in the city. Special squads had been formed to net the violators while SDPO’s and Station House Officers were also taking part in the operation.
The officers concerned had been directed to utilize all available resources to control the kite flying and selling and to net the ban violators and the kite sellers. The kite flying ban violators were being dealt with an iron hand and no one would be allowed to violate the law and indulge in kite flying and selling.
The use of metal string for kite flying results in the loss of human lives therefore, all-out efforts are made to stop kite flying. The kite flying not only causes power outages due to hitting electric wires. It becomes a threat to human lives, while young people fall from the rooftops and become victims of life-long illness.
The people had also been requested to report such activities to their nearest police stations and police helpline “Pukar-15”.
