A 20-year-old woman climbed onto a mobile tower in Uttar Pradesh’s Maharajganj district to profess her love for a man and convince him to marry her, police said on Friday.To witness the incident, a large number of people gathered near the 50-metre-high tower that led to traffic congestion on a nearby highway, prompting police to undertake crowd control measures.

Several in the crowd recorded the incident on their mobile-phones as it reminded them of Viru’s (Dharmendra) act on an overhead water tank professing his love for Basanti (Hema Malini) in the movie Sholay.
