Agartala: A fresh water dolphin was found dead from the banks of the river Gomati in South Tripura district, officials said on Wednesday.

Villager Abul Kasem spotted the dolphin weighing about 200 kg yesterday after which a team from the forest department
took away the carcass.

The dolphin might have swum down the backwater from river Padma in Bangladesh and died here due to lower water
level, Chief Wildlife Warden Dr A K Gupta said.
This is for the first that the mammal species was found in a Tripura river.
