Giant Crocodile enters House in Malkangiri Village

Malkangiri, Nov 1: Two children miraculously escaped from attack of a crocodile even as the reptile entered their house in Munata village under Malkangiri district last night.

According to sources, a 10-12 feet long crocodile entered into the house of one Dasaratha Madakami of Munata village when the family members, including his two daughters, were asleep at around 3 am. When Dasaratha woke up, he panicked to find the reptile in his house.

Hearing screams of the family members, neighbours rushed the house and managed to catch the crocodile with help of sticks. They have now tied the reptile to a big pole and informed the forest officials.

Getting information, a team of forest officials rushed to the spot to rescue the crocodile. It is suspected that the crocodile might have come out from the nearby Sitaguda dam.

On the other hand, the villagers are terrorised to see such a huge crocodile for the first time in the village.
