said that the contaminated water has caused its death.
The dead crocodile was found floating in the lake on Sunday morning by the morning walkers. “I am a regular visitor to the lake since five
years. Poisonous chemicals flow into the lake and consumption of it might have caused the death of the crocodile,” said Ravishankar.

sent for examination. After studying the report, the exact reason for the death of the crocodile can be ascertained.
