Police were called to the Ste Madeleine pond on Wednesday after receiving a report that the body of a young child was spotted floating in the waters.  

After conducting a search, the officers were relieved to find that it was only a murti submerged in the pond.

The murti was removed from the waters, and the police left the scene.

Senior police told LoopTT that officers were thankful that the information was incorrect.

However, they said they would continue to investigate all reports of this nature, given the violence which has been known to take place near the pond over recent times.

During the first four months of this year alone, the bodies of four persons were found dumped in the pond.
