In the fourth such incident in the past month,an eight-ft-long dead dolphin was washed ashore at Bandra Bandstand on Monday. A resident,Benedict Suarez,had spotted the dolphin on Monday evening and called up BMC officials on Tuesday morning. The carcass was disposed of by the solid waste management department of the H West ward office later.

“There was a foul smell in the area,because of which I took a closer look and found a dolphin floating. BMC officials used a JCB machine to fish it out. Last week,a dead turtle was also washed ashore,” said Suarez.

Local corporator Asif Zakaria said it is a matter of concern as it is the fourth such incident in less than a month.

A humpback whale was found dead at Diveagar coast in Raigad last week. This came after two whales of the same species were found beached at Uran and off Priyadarshini Park,Napean Sea Road,on March 29 and March 31.
