UP: Boy dies while taking selfie on speeding bike

BAREILLY: Taking a selfie while standing on a speeding bike proved fatal to a teenager who died after the uncontrolled bike crashed into an electric pole. The incident was reported from Islamnagar area of Budaun district on Wednesday. His two friends suffered injuries in the accident.
The victim, Shoeb, 17, who rode pillion, had left home along with his college friends Aman and Armaan in the afternoon. In the evening, an anonymous caller informed Shoeb’s father Akhtar about the accident. Soon, the trio’s relatives rushed to the spot and shifted them to a hospital. Shoeb, however, succumbed to the injuries he had suffered on his head within a few minutes of the treatment, said police.
Islamnagar police station SHO Bachchu Singh told TOI, “The family had shifted the victim to a hospital before we reached the spot. Later, we came to know that one of the boys had died.
The other two are stable. Since there was no other vehicle involved in the accident, no complaint was lodged. The family refused a post-mortem examination and buried Shoeb. We will register a complaint against the person riding the bike for rash driving and damaging public property as per the law.”
“We came to know that the boys were making videos on the moving bike. But, we have so far not found a photo or a video clip. Besides, we don’t have a witness on record,” added the SHO.
