Palghar: 100 foot long dead whale washed ashore

Palghar: A nearly 100-foot-long dead whale has washed ashore in Maharashtra’s Palghar district, police said on Tuesday. Some fishermen spotted the dead whale on Arnala beach on Monday afternoon and informed the local police. Fisheries and revenue department officials were also informed.

An official from the Arnala Sagar police station said the police examined the whale’s carcass and suspect that the whale might have collided with a ship or a large boat, leading to its death and washing ashore. After the news spread in the area, a huge crowd gathered on the beach to catch a glimpse of the giant marine creature. Police said the carcass will be disposed of as per protocol.
