The pollution of the Indrayani River is increasing and on Wednesday around 500 fishes of different types were found dead in Dehu Gaon, a pilgrimage site. The dead fish include Golden, Mahashir, Shivda and their length is about three and a half feet.

When citizens went for a walk on the banks of Indrayani River in Dehu Gaon on Wednesday, they found around five hundred dead fish in Kapurwada. Fishes like Vam, Maral, Chilapi were found in the Indrayani River till now. But it has been pointed out that there are rare fishes like Deva fish in this river.

Among the fish that died, the Deva fishes also died. In the Indrayani riverbed, waterfowl has grown in places. Fish cannot reach the upper part of the water there. So, the fish came to the Kapurwada area where there is less aquatic life. But since the sewage of the city is released from the stream without any treatment, the water has become highly polluted. The amount of oxygen in the water of the Indrayani River has decreased.

A social activist said that the pollution of the river has increased. The sewage of the city is directly mixed with the river. Water hyacinth has grown. Because of this, aquatic animals are losing their lives. Administration must take strict steps to prevent river pollution.

Meanwhile, an officer from the Divisional Commissioner’s Office and Chief Chairperson of Dehu Nagar Panchayat visited the spot. Water samples have been taken to find out the reasons for the fish die-off. The officer said that water samples will be given to the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB).
