Mangaluru:  Fish were found dead in the estuary near Gurupura on Monday April 25. The owner of Kapila Park Goshala Prakash Shetty informed that they immediately notified the authorities when they found dead fish.

He further said that the entire river has become polluted, and our cattle have been unwell for the past three days after drinking water from the river. The cattle felt better after they were given new water to drink, he added.

According to sources, the colour of the water kept changing. Up to the Arabian Sea, the colour of the water is claimed to be turning blackish at Maravaoor, Kenjar, Thokur, and Kulur. It is believed to be caused by sewage inflow and industrial discharge.

Environmental Officer Keerthi Kumar K. of the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board and a team of officials visited the site and took water samples for analysis.
