Villagers capture crocodile

The villagers from Madhya Pradesh’s Sheopur district on Tuesday captured a crocodile for 7 hours to recover a 7-year-old boy who they thought the reptile had swallowed.

Believing that the reptile had swallowed a boy named Antar Singh, the angry villagers first tied its legs and clamped a stick between its jaws to prevent it from chewing.

The villagers had a strong thought that Antar Singh — who came under the crocodile attack while bathing in Chambal River with his friends in Sheopur on Monday, was alive inside the reptile’s stomach and even called out his name, believing he would answer from there. A crowd had gathered hearing the frantic calls for help and captured the reptile using nets.

After hours of convincing by the forest department and search operations team, the villagers finally relented after they found the boy’s body in the Chambal River.

The boy’s body was found on Tuesday and a guard was deployed at the banks of the river to protect the crocodile.

The drama was continued for the whole Monday night, with villagers insisting that the boy was alive inside the croc and forest officials and police explaining it wasn’t possible.

On Monday, the boy from Raghunathpur village had gone to Rijheta ghat to take a bath. He was attacked by a crocodile and was dragged into the water. Villagers, who were present at the ghat informed his father Lakshman Singh, Satendra Tomar, the additional superintendent of police Morena said.

After receiving inputs, the forest team reached the spot and tried to convince the villagers that the crocodile can’t swallow the boy. “The stomach of the crocodile was looking empty so there was no chance that the crocodile could have eaten the boy. Villagers were not convinced, Swaroop Dixit, divisional forest officer, said.

When police and SDRF launched the rescue operation late evening on Monday, the villagers released the crocodile after the police convinced Singh’s family and other villagers that the body will be found in the river and the family will receive compensation for it, Dixit said.

The SDRF team found the body of the boy on Tuesday. The body was handed over after post-mortem. The crocodile was released into the river on Tuesday morning but a guard was deployed to take care of it from the villagers, the DFO said.

The Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) has filed a police complaint and all bus services have been suspended in Jalna. MSRTC’s Depot Manager of Ambad Taluka has also lodged a complaint at a local station demanding action against the accused who set the bus on fire.  Jalna collector Srikrushna Panchal said there is a possibility that quota supporters may arrive at Antarwali Sarati village in Ambad Taluka of Jalna, where the activist has been staging a hunger strike and stop him from going to Mumbai.

The curfew order said there is a possibility that traffic on Dhule – Mumbai highway and Tehsils near Ambad may get affected. The collector said government offices, schools, movement on national highways, milk distribution, media and hospitals have been exempted from the order. Maharashtra Congress leader Vijay Wadettiwar appealed to Maharashtra reservation activist Manoj Jarange Patil to protest peacefully and stated that he should ensure that nobody is harmed and law and order should be maintained in the area.

He further added everybody knows who has groomed Manoj Jarange, and whose people used to visit Manoj Patil. Maharashtra government ministers used to meet the activists. He said they are reaping what they had sown in the past.

The Maharshtra Legislative assembly (lower house) unanimously passed the Maratha reservation Bill tabled in February, which intended to extend 10% reservation to Marathas above the 50% cap.
