Changanassery: Following the tragic death of three people in a bike accident in Changanassery, the police beefed up patrols. They enhanced checking of the ‘new generation’ bikes from Thursday morning.
DYSP R Sreekumar and CI Prasanth lead the patrol. The bikers race and do stunts on the road and post the visuals on social media. They use helmet-mounted action cameras sometimes.
A bike that was speeding at 150 kmph collided with another in Changanassery, which led to the death of three. Police are planning to check the visuals from the camera used by one of the bikers.
