Hi Raghu,
  Nice photographs, but the second frog [Photograph 3] is the Indian Bullfrog [Hoplobatrachus tigerinus]. The white vertebral line on the back is normally present in many common species of Ranid frogs. Also seen in your photograph is the ridge-like tubercles on the back [not seen in the I.Pond Frog] & the broad white band on the side of the frog which separates the darker colour of the back from the unmarked white belly -. features of the Indian Bullfrog.
                               Regards,
                                Neil Soares.
