In April 2022, several images of dead fish floating in the Banganga tank, located in Mumbai’s Malabar Hill area, circulated on news sites and social media platforms. Clean-up efforts were initiated after locals observed the dead fish in the tank and informed the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation.

One key cause that has been identified for the fish deaths is people putting large quantities of food in the water as part of religious rituals.
