Katni (Madhya Pradesh): In a quite dangerous attempt, villagers in Katni were seen risking their lives by crossing a river while carrying motorbikes and bicycles amidst the rainy season. It is said that they attempted to do so in order to cut short a 15-kms-journey.

The life-risking act was recorded in a video which is widely circulating and has reached the district administration.  

According to information, residents of Gram Guda Deori village in Badwara Tehsil of Katni district are used to crossing Mahanadi river, which has swelled-up in monsoon season, carrying their bikes and bicycles in their hands and shoulders.

Additionally, it was found that the villagers chose this very way, as otherwise, they will have to travel a long 15 kilometres in order to reach the tehsil headquarters in Badwara. However, despite being aware of the risks, they do not hesitate to take such chances. Hence, to avoid a long journey, rural residents often find themselves in precarious situations.
