Selfie Craze Claims Two Lives near Charmadi Ghat

Chikkamagaluru: The selfie craze has been resulting in more and more deaths at dangerous spots. Mishaps occur more often at picnic spots because of the absence of caution signs and when first-time visitors are not aware of the hazards involved and when the spirit of misadventure takes the better of wisdom.


Five persons from Chitradurga had visited Mangaluru, Dharmasthala and Subrahmanya in Dakshina Kannada on Saturday and were on their way back. In transit, they stopped over at Alekan falls on the road to Charmadi ghat.

In their eagerness to click selfies in front of the falls, Nagabhushan (28) reportedly lost his physical balance and fell into the water. Hanumantappa (34) jumped in to save him. Both got dragged away by the force of water.

The police from Banakal station and the fire brigade, assisted by a local social worker, Monu, conducted a search operation and fished out the bodies.

A case has been registered at the Banakal police station.

Take care, folks!
