Jamshedpur: The footfall at Tata Steel Zoological Park inside the landmark Jubilee Park has nosedived since the two entry points leading to the animal kingdom remain shut. The footfall at the zoo was expected to increase after gates of the Jubilee Park were thrown open for the public after a year-and-a-half on Sunday. But the two entry points (one near the Centre for Excellence and the other which leads to the Jayanti Sarovar) remain closed. Barricades have been put at both these entry points. The footfall at the zoo used to be around 1,500-1,600 every day before the pandemic but now it has come to almost half. (Jayesh Thaker)
