A 25-year-old biker died while performing a stunt inside a Maut Ka Kuan (Well of Death) show at a fair at Jeypore in Odisha's Koraput district, the police said.
The mishap occurred last night when performers were showing a stunt inside a 30-feet deep wooden well.
During the show, two bikes and two cars are driven continuously at a specified speed for around five minutes, they said.
