Two days after a video of a UK-based Parkour group performing risky jumps from the terrace of a high rise building to another at Mumbai, India went viral on the social media, the Mumbai Police traced the persons involved and deported them to the UK for flouting norms of their tourist visa.

The six free-runners who performed the death-defying stunts -- Max Cave (26), Benj Storror Cave (24), Callum Powell (27), Toby Segar (24), Sacha Powell (24) and Drew F Taylor (24), are part of the Parkour group called Storror, famous for their stunts.

“Four of them had come for a conference at Worli. Two others came for a business trip,” said senior police inspector Diwakar Shelke of Dadar police station under whose jurisdiction the incident took place.

“They broke certain rules of tourist visa, wherein by performing such stunt, they have endangered the life of themselves and others, so necessary cognizance was taken and the group was sent back,” he added.

“The free-runners selected the Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Housing Society buildings at Parel, Dadar for the stunt after going through Google Maps, but did not take the permission of either the residents or the local police. It was an act of endangering their own lives, which is illegal,” said Shelke.

On November 26 afternoon, one of the members from the group undertook dangerous jumps without any safety gears from a 14-storey building to a 13-storey building in the housing society. Videos of the jumps were shot by other members of the group as well as residents of the housing society, following which the videos had gone viral on social media.



The next day, the police took cognizance of the incident and traced the free runners, who were visiting India to perform at NSCI Club on December 2. The group has a strong presence on YouTube with their videos garnering lakhs of views.
