Khadakwasla Dam in Pune is famous for its view and it has become a picnic spot. But Puneites please be aware as per the officials, there are sightings of crocodiles in dams since 2011.
National Defence Academy (NDA) carries their naval training in this dam. As there is presence of crocodiles in water, for the safety of cadets, NDA has got 6 speed boats to watch out for. As per the authorities, in naval training, cadets need to undergo boat handling, search operations and they also get training on different water sports. So measures need to be taken for safety of cadets from crocodiles, snakes.
So let’s all be alert and careful while around the dam area and being a responsible citizen, try not to pollute the water as city gets most of its drinking water from this dam only.
