Jaipur: The craze for a selfie turned fatal for a 23-year-old tourist to the Mehrangarh Fort in Rajasthan's Jodhpur city on Tuesday, police said.
The man named Nikhil was trying to click a selfie on Tuesday evening when he fell down from the ramparts of the fort in Jodhpur, over 350 km from here.
"Nikhil had gone to the fort with his friends in the afternoon. While he was trying to click a selfie, he lost his balance and fell down near a temple from where he was rushed to the Mahatma Gandhi Hospital where he was declared dead," a police official told IANS over phone.
The deceased man's family has been informed, while police have launched an investigation.
