Authorities in India’s Mumbai city have identified 15 areas where shooting selfies “may be dangerous”.
The areas range from the iconic sea-facing Marine Drive promenade both leading tourist attractions, as well as the popular Girgaum Chowpatty beach.
The decision was taken after an 18-year old girl drowned in the ocean last week while shooting a selfie.
Hints saying “no selfie zone” could be viewed across both festival sites in the state of Maharashtra.
Representative for Mumbai cops Dhananjay Kulkarni told the BBC the places where shooting selfies was dangerous contained Sion Garrison Bandra Bandstand and Worli Fort, all areas popular with tourists.
“The authorities will now approach the city’s municipality to avoid injuries at such places as a result of individuals shooting selfies.
Saturday’s event when three girls attempting to shoot a selfie near the ocean in the Bandra place fell to the water is followed by the authorities warning.
A passerby, 37-year old Ramesh Walanju, helped save both of the other girls and jumped in but was washed away from the waters that were choppy and his body was found floating in a closeby creek on Monday, AFP said.
