According to information, some villagers first saw the croc while they were taking bath in the river. Most of the people of villages, located on both the sides of the river, take bath in the river water every day.
Villagers gathered on the embankment in thousands to see the crocodile.
Notably, a crocodile had been seen in the same river near Govindpur police station a few days back. Then, the Wildlife Department had put up posters, cautioning people against the creature. While the department has not been able to catch the creature, spotting of another creature four-five km down the river has panicked the villagers in the entire area.
