A 20-year-old man met a tragic end after falling into a dam in Maharashtra’s Beed district while taking a selfie.
Sheikh had gone to the Bindusarai dam in the afternoon with his friends. While clicking a selfie along the edge of the dam, Gazik Sheikh and his friend Akhtar Sheikh, slipped and fell into it.
The Bindusarai dam had reached its full capacity from heavy rainfall in Beed over the last few days. Gazik was swept away by the strong currents. Akhtar was however rescued by locals who rushed to help the men.
Gazik’s body was later recovered by the locals.
Though the men were trespassing, the area around the dam did not have any signboards to warn people of the danger, neither was there a guard on duty.
