    Youngsters in Hyderabad are swimming in the dirty waters of Musi river after heavy rain. The gates of the Osmansagar and Himayatsagar reservoirs have been opened, causing water to flow towards Jiyaguda, Chaderghat, and Moosarambagh. This has led to a competition among young people to swim in Chaderghat, where the water level is high.

    The traffic police have placed barricades on the bridges to prevent vehicles from entering, but there are no restrictions for youngsters entering the river. However, swimming in the fast-flowing river is dangerous and has resulted in the loss of lives in the past.
