HORRIFYING footage shows the moment a man’s lifeless mauled body was dragged through a river by a crocodile.
The man, identified as 30-year-old Imran Diwan, reportedly visited the Dhadhar River in Sokhdaraghu Village in Gujarat, India on August 7 before disappearing under the water later that day.
Local media suggested he may have slipped before falling into the treacherous stream.
In the chilling clip, the man can be seen laying lifeless above the water’s surface, as he glides along the muddy river.
As he rolls onto his back, a crocodile can be spotted – appearing to drag his body towards land.
Shortly after, the reptile fully reveals itself and submerges the dead body underwater as a mass crowd of nearby villages look on in horror.
According to reports, locals attempted to rescue the man, but were unable to retrieve the body from the jaws of the viscous reptile.
It’s claimed the fire brigade were called to assist, but despite hours of searching, they were unable to locate him.
Imran’s devastated brother, Javed said: “He had gone to a dargah that is located right on the river bank. I think he must have slipped from the parapet and fell in the river.
“The reptile caught hold of [him] and dragged [him] away.”
