Speaking to NewsMeter, Deputy Commissioner of Police Cyberabad Traffic Vijay Kumar said visitors are seen dangerously crossing the footpath and jumping the railing for selfies.
“These might result in accidents. Photos are allowed at the footpaths, not on the carriageway. Cops did not want to chase the boys because they might run and injure themselves. These are not stand-alone incidents. The CCTV cameras have captured many dangerous movements of visitors on the bridge. Cops on the grounds have been continuously cautioning them,” he said.
