anjuna goaPanaji/Nagpur: Five tourists were injured, two of them severely, when they fell off a cliff while clicking selfies at Anjuna village in Panaji.

Goa Police have asked a sub-divisional magistrate to record the statement of two of the women who were seriously injured in the incident and admitted to hospital.

The five persons fell off the cliff on February 22 when the gate of the railing on which they were leaning opened, police said.

The incident occurred near the hillside cottages where the tourists were staying.

“Two women fell on their back on a stone and are currently admitted in a private hospital. The doctors have said that they might be paralysed for life,” police inspector Paresh Naik said.

The three others were discharged after primary treatment, he said.
