Two bikers died on early morning of Friday when their bike fell off the Signature Bridge over the Yamuna in northwest Delhi weeks after its opening, police said.
The bikers were speeding and lost control and hit a divider.
“Two men were riding a KTM Duke bike towards Timarpur from northeast Delhi side. They were speeding and taking a turn towards Majnu Ka Tila when they lost control, the bike hit a road divider, and they fell 25-30 feet down from the bridge,” additional DCP Jasmeet Singh said
The two of them were immediately rushed to a nearby hospital. However, they succumbed to their injuries. Their identity is yet not known.
Though reports suggested the bikers may have been doing stunts, Singh said they have not found any eyewitness to verify whether the two were doing stunts or taking selfies.
The bridge was recently inaugurated on November 4 and has seen a huge rush of visitors taking selfies, some of them even risking their lives by climbing on car tops and suspension cables to take photographs.
