A video of a man performing dangerous stunts on the ledge of a high-rise building in Mumbai went viral. The police are now searching for the man and his two associates who recorded the video on their mobile phones.

The video, which was widely shared on social media, showed a young man sitting on the boundary wall of the 22nd floor of a building and sipping an energy drink. He then jumps on to the narrow ledge and performs handstand, while his associates record the video.

One of the persons uploaded the video on his Instagram account and challenged others to perform the stunt.

The Kandivli police have registered an FIR and booked three persons. According to police, the stunts were performed at Bharat SRA co-operative society, a building located in Lalji Pada at Kandiali west.

After the video went viral on social media, the police team reached the building and found out that the man performing the stunt in the video stays in a rented flat.

“A video has surfaced on social media wherein a boy can be seen performing stunts atop a high rise building. Three boys involved in making of the video have been identified and a case has been registered under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code,” said inspector Ravi Adane, Kandivli police.

The FIR has been registered under Sections 336 (endangering life or personal safety of others) and 34 (Common Intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). No arrests have been made so far.
