Advocate Mrinal Mangotra who was going on a motorcycle from the Jogi Gate area got injured after Gattu Dor wrapped around his neck. Advocate Mrinal hails from Rehari and had to get four stitches on his neck. Mrinal said he was going on a motorcycle when he realized that some thread got stuck in his neck near Jagi Gate. He immediately tried to remove the thread, but that thread cut his throat. While pulling this string, his hand was also cut off.
Later, when he went to a doctor, he saw that his throat wound was intense and would have to get stitches. After this, Mrinal called someone of his acquaintance and went to GMC hospital for treatment, where he had to get four stitches to stop the bleeding and close the wound.
There is a complete ban on Gattu Dor in Jammu city, but despite this, dor is being sold in the market, and people are also flying kites with it. This thread has injured many people, while people have lost their lives due to its grip.
According to SSP Jammu Chandan Kohli, the police is continuously taking action against those selling Gattu Doors. In the last few days, shopkeepers selling Gattu Doors have been arrested. Police raid continues. In Jammu, the district administration had banned the sale of Gattu Dor. This ban has been in place for the last six years, but the shopkeepers are selling it in black to make a profit. This thread is smuggled and transported to Jammu, where it is being sold indiscriminately.
