Volgens berigte, 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 [hom] and dragged [hom] away.”

Javed claims that the search for his brother’s body is still ongoing.

He hopes that fishermen who often visit the river will be able to retrieve the corpse.
