The five persons fell off the cliff on February 22 when the gate of the railing on which they were leaning opened, police said.

The incident occurred near the hillside cottages where the tourists were staying.

“Two women fell on their back on a stone and are currently admitted in a private hospital. The doctors have said that they might be paralysed for life,” police inspector Paresh Naik told PTI today.

The three others were discharged after primary treatment, he said.

“The family members of the two women have refused to file any formal police complaint, but we have requested sub- divisional magistrate to record their statements,” Naik said.

Police refused to divulge the names of the women, but said that all those injured in the incident are in their late 20s.
