Butcher Island (Jawahar Dweep) is an island off the coast of Mumbai (Bombay), India. It has an oil terminal used by the port authorities to offload it from oil tankers. The crude oil is stored in oil containers on the island. From there they are piped to Wadala, in Bombay where they are refined. This keeps the city relatively safe from a mishap.
It is a restricted area and most of the island is covered with dense vegetation. A hillock rises from the centre of the island. It is located 8.25 kilometres (5.13 miles) from the Gateway of India.
