Mumbai police have identified 16 dangerous selfie spots across the Indian city and may introduce “no selfie zones” after a man drowned trying to save a girl who fell into the sea while taking a photo of herself. The girl and two friends fell off rocks into the Arabian Sea near Bandra Bandstand in the north of India’s financial capital while taking selfies on Saturday. The dangerous selfie spots identified by the police include the major tourist attractions of Girgaum Chowpatty beach and Marine Drive promenade as well as the site where the girl slipped, according to police. “After the unfortunate incident, we have decided to identify 16 spots where taking selfies can be dangerous, but we may add more,” deputy commissioner Dhananjay Kulkarni told the AFP news agency. Police officers patrolling the selected areas have been briefed to warn people against taking selfies. But Kulkarni added that official “no selfie spots” may be introduced if those precautions fail to deter those visiting the areas.
