 Is  there  a  law  in  India  that  prohibits  dumping  of  fish  in  water  bodies?
 
 Past  Sunday  I  was  passing  by  the  a  River  body  in  Mumbai  and  saw  a  person  dumping  some  fish  (just  from  glimpse  looked  like  Pacu)  in  it.  The  best  I  could  do  is,  tell  him  the  hazards  of  doing  so  but  this  person  was  very  rude  to  me.
 
 So  I  was  wondering  if  there  is  any  Law.  I  know  complaining  will  be  waste  of  efforts  but  at  least  next  time  I  can  quote  it  to  create  some  fear.

 If  the  river  body  is  in  use  by  the  government  for  public  purposes  like  fishing,  swimming  and  is  used  by  a  variety  of  public,  then  any  fish  which  is  released  which  can  cause  damage  to  the  actual  habitat  as  well  as  humans  is  punishable  by  law.  
 
 Assume  the  person  is  releasing  a  crocodile  in  the  water,  there  is  risk  to  all  and  sundry  of  all  people  who  use  the  water  body.  It  is  punishable  by  law.
 
 It  would  be  good  if  you  can  refer  the  exact  section  in  a  lawyers'  handbook.  This  section  has  examples  wherein  it  states  a  dog  biting  a  human  on  its  own  is  very  different  from  a  dog  which  had  been  induced  by  a  human  to  bite  another  human.  You  will  find  this  rule  in  the  criminal  section.
 
 I  am  not  a  lawyer,  but  I  have  come  across  this  section.

 I  don't  think  there  is  any  such  law  in  India.
 The  only  act  governing  animals  in  India  in  "Indian  Wildlife  Act",  and  it  is  silent  on  such  issues.

 Sad  to  know  these  Aquacrazy_Ash  and  the  level  of  awareness  to  the  nature  is  really  low.  You  should  have  released  him  in  the  lake  along  with  that  Fish.
 
 On  a  heavy  note,  there  is  literally  nothing  you  can  do.  Only  if  the  lake  is  covered  by  Military  or  govt  then  they  will  take  notice  of  it.  While  my  tenure  in  HYD,  I  saw  many  people  released  fishes  in  Pragathi  Nagar  lake  near  JNTU.Repeated  requested  felt  into  deaf  ears.
 
 Or  else  you  can  advice  him  to  donate  these  fishes  in  the  local  LFS  or  can  send  them  to  a  zoo  or  public  Aquarium..or  if  one  has  in  house  pond(  big  cement  tank  as  kaya  and  others  made  and  maintained)  can  volunteer  to  take  them  and  release  them  in  that..
 
 Really  sad..

 @Amazonian  -  LOL...I  really  felt  like  doing  that  but  he  was  real  hefty  guy   Chuckle  
 
 Its  is  a  real  sorry  state  of  afairs....People  give  a  ****  about  nature.  I  can  understand  if  someone  does  it  out  of  ignorance  but  at  least  should  learn  from  mistakes.  And  the  sad  part  is  we  can  do  nothing  about  it.
