Hyderabad: A mentally unstable man, who was allegedly about to attempt suicide by jumping off the PVNR Expressway, was rescued by a group of youngsters late on Wednesday.
The incident came to light on Thursday after a video of the incident started making rounds on social media. Parvesh (24), a native of Bihar, had climbed the railing of the flyover near Pillar No 125 at Attapur and was about to jump from there. Police said a few youngsters who were working out at the Celebrity Fitness Studio nearby noticed him after the gym owner Indrasen alerted them. They immediately rushed to the spot and even as Parvesh was sitting on the railing, slowly approached him from behind and brought him down.
A few locals, who had noticed him from the road below, had shouted at him and even pelted stones in an attempt to stop him from jumping. However, it was the two youngsters who rushed to the spot on their motorbike and rescued Parvesh, who was handed over to the Rajendranagar police. Police said they had informed Parvesh’s family in Bihar and that they were on the way to Hyderabad.
