Two youths were arrested by the Hyderabad Police after they were caught on a CCTV camera shooting pictures on the newly opened Durgam Cheruvu bridge.
CCTV footage shows one of the two people lying down on the middle of the bridge without his shirt so that a photographer can click his photos. A third person can be seen standing on the side watching the whole incident unfold.
However, soon enough a black police car can be seen reaching the spot and parking next to the photographer. While the cameraperson allows himself to be caught, the shirtless youngster and the spectator can both be seen making a run for it as the video comes to an end.
This is not the first time that such an incident has happened on the bridge. Off late Durgam Cheruvu Bridge has become a popular selfie point. Not so long ago activist Sai Teja had shared a clip in which a couple can be seen displaying careless behaviour on the bridge.
In the video, shared by the activist on Twitter, it is seen that the woman is posing in the middle of the road during traffic hours. Her partner is seen clicking her pictures. Captioning the video, Sai wrote, “The main reason for uploading the video was to show the mindless behaviour of people. It can have tragic consequences for them as well as others.”
