Nagpur: A megabat, also known as a fruit bat, which was entangled in a nylon kite-flying thread was rescued by the members of NGO King Cobra Organisation on Sunday.
The severely injured bat was found hanging from a tree in Mahal. After the rescue operation, the bat was taken to a veterinary doctor for treatment. Activists slammed the local authorities for “allowing the sale of deadly manja”.
“Despite a blanket ban, Chinese manja is openly sold in city markets every year. It is a threat to humans, animals and birds,” they added.
