Police decided to call the popular crowd like Marine Drive, Girgaum Chowpatty and Juhu Beach to discourage trend-setters from venturing too close to the water this season, especially when big waves hit shore.

The Chunabhatti resident, Preeti Pisa, was dragged out to sea on Marine Drive on June 27 at high tide. Police said college student Wilson proudly dodged great waves on his foot when he lost his life.

On Sunday, police blocked a portion of the large bridge to prevent visitors to approach the sea waves boosted swollen. Continuous announcements were made to deliver the message. Despite the efforts, some have managed to sneak into the barricades.

Life is more important than fun.”

Alarmed by the disturbing trend, the Mumbai police social media team began posting spiritual messages to hear the message. Karandikar said “Our goal is to spread the message of not leaving a self-harm cause we do in all available means.”

The officer added: “If someone has seen the risk of the life of their companions or of their companions, our people and speak their escort of them to safety.”
