Mobor: Tar ball menace has hit Mobor beach with thick layer of oil spread across the shoreline.
It has been usual phenomenon during monsoons that tar balls are surfacing on the beaches of Goa, but this time, the condition at Mobor beach has gone worst. Local claimed that no authorities have visited to clean up this beach, which might cause environmental hazard.
