Days after the agonizing bridge collapse in Gujarat’s Morbi in which 135 people lost their lives, a shocking video has emerged showing a car being driven on a narrow suspension bridge over a river in Karnataka.
The undated video shows tourists driving a Maharashtra-registered Maruti 800 car on the Shivapura Hanging Bridge in Yellapura town in Uttara Kannada district.
Sources said that the tourists allegedly misbehaved with the locals when they were asked to leave the bridge. However, the locals ensured that the vehicle was driven back.
The clip shows two locals pushing the car toward the end of the bridge while several people are also seen standing behind the vehicle. According to sources, the police are looking into the matter and are likely to register a case related to negligence against the tourists.The Shivapura Hanging Bridge is a tourist attraction and is just 5 km away from Sathodi Falls. The bridge connects Yallapur and Uluvi/Dandeli.
