Mumbai News: Baby crocodile found in BMC swimming pool in Dadar area | Video
A two-foot-long baby crocodile was found in a swimming pool of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in Dadar area early Tuesday morning
In a bizarre occurrence on Tuesday early morning a two-foot-long baby crocodile was found happily swimming around in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in Dadar area.
"An investigation is underway to find out how the crocodile ended up in the swimming pool and necessary action will be taken based on it," deputy municipal commissioner Kishor Gandhi said in the release.
A senior BMC official, who did not wish to be named, ruled out the possibility of the reptile slipping in from the sea side as there is a 15-20 feet wall in between. But reptiles, including a python, had entered the swimming pool premises thrice in the recent past, and the BMC had informed the police then and it has written to them afresh after the latest `sighting', he said.
The swimming pool shares a border with a private zoo, and there is no wall on that side, he added.
MNS leader Sandeep Deshpande and some members of the swimming pool, while speaking to media, claimed that reptiles from this zoo had slipped into the pool premises on a few occasions. BMC officials offered no comment on the claim.
