The district administration on Monday imposed Section 144 in Barwani of Madhya Pradesh and banned taking selfies near water bodies in the district.
This comes after police last week rescued two girls in Chhindwara, who got stuck in Pench river while taking selfies.
The incident occurred on July 23 when a group of girls ventured into the Pench riverside and two of them got stuck after the water level rose.
The Madhya Pradesh police on Friday, July 24 rescued the two girls. A video of the same has gone viral.
In the video, the girls are seen standing in the middle of the river on a small rock, trying to balance themselves by holding each other. The river currents are rapid and one false move can pull a person down the waterfall that can be seen in the bottom right of the video.
A team of policemen are seen taking necessary precautions to rescue the girls.
