According to officials, the prohibition is being imposed to ensure the safety of humans and provide a congenial environment to the breeding crocodiles. The prohibition will be lifted on July 31. The prohibition on tourists and visitors has been clamped to ensure disturbance-free annual nesting of crocodiles.
The reptiles often turn violent and attack intruders during this period. So the objective is to ensure the safety of humans and provide congenial environs to the breeding crocodiles, said an official.
