Ten quintals of fish found dead in Uttar Pradesh

National, Tue, 07 Oct 2008 IANS

Lucknow, Oct 7 (IANS) Nearly ten quintals of fish were found dead in a pond in Uttar Pradesh's Sitapur district possibly due to industrial pollutants, a police official said Tuesday.


'Schools of dead fish were found floating Monday evening in the Banaganga pond in Hargaon town in Sitapur,' police inspector Tulsi Ram told IANS over phone. Sitapur is located 80 km from Lucknow.



Even as the cause behind the perishing of the fish is yet to be ascertained, the police said prima facie it appears that the fish died of effluents discharged in the pond from a sugar factory located in the same town.



Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh Pollution Control Board (UPPCB) was not aware about the incident.



'Till now, we have not received any such reports. Since you are pointing this out, we would conduct an extensive inquiry in this matter,' UPPCB chairman Anil Kumar Mishra said.
