: Kite-flying in religious places and thoroughfares have been banned by the police here from January 14 to 15 on the occasion of Sankaranti festival.

Police commissioner Anjani Kumar, in his order, advised people not to fly kites or allow their children run on roads or climb electric posts to collect tangled kites.

He said, ''In order to maintain law and order, peace and tranquility and to prevent incidents of breach of peace and accident that are likely to occur, kite-flying is regulated during the celebration of Sankranti festival in the Hyderabad city from January 14-15.''

The police official said parents must advise their children not to fly kites from terraces which do not have parapet walls to avoid any untoward incident.
