Dharmapuri, Tamil Nadu, Aug 9 (UNI) Six-year-old Jaya Kapilan's feat in climbing a 330-foot telecom transmission tower here recently has created a controversy.

District authorities said no permission was sought for the act nor were the Fire Service informed. The boy had climbed the tower without any protective gear like safety harness or medical teams being present at the spot.

Kapilan, the son of an LIC agent, had performed the feat with bare hands and feet and took a little over eight minutes to reach the top.

Earlier, the boy also drove the car carrying a press delegation and VIPs to the site located on the Dharmapuri-Melpurikal route, 20 km from here.
