Some fishermen spotted the dead mammal at the Arnala beach on Monday afternoon and alerted local police. Authorities of the fisheries and revenue departments were also informed.

Police inspected the carcass and it was suspected the whale might have been struck by a ship or a large boat, leading to its death and drifting to the shore, an official from Arnala Sagri police station said.
