Ankit Vyas, marine respondent and volunteer from the Wildlife Crime Control Bureau, said, "The turtle, whose carcass was recovered from the Aksa beach, was 2-feet long. One of the lifeguards at the beach found it while he was taking a walk. The body was in an extreme decomposed condition."
However, soon after he spotted it, Vyas immediately informed N Vasudevan, head of the Mangroves Cell; Prashant Deshmukh, range forest officer and the additional principal chief conservator of forest about it. Following this, a team was immediately sent to the spot.
