Crocodile strolls into Karnataka village

Crocodile strolls into Karnataka village Sumesh Rajan 4 July 2021 A huge crocodile made a surprise visit to Kogilban village near the resort town of Dandeli in Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka, on July 1, scaring the wits out of the villagers. The reptile had come out of the nearby Kali river, which meanders through the Kali Tiger Reserve (earlier known as Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve), in the district. Fortunately, it did not attack anyone, nor the humans following it at a distance or those taking videos of it. The crocodile walked at a leisurely pace and did not even bother the stray dogs that came near it. The villagers contacted the forest department officials who rushed to the spot and captured it, before releasing it unharmed into the river. According to wildlife officials, Kali river has a sizable population of crocodiles. Keeping that in mind, a crocodile park has been set up in Dandeli.

A non-resident Indian who had returned home in India from the Middle East and broke the mandatory self-quarantine period of 14 days, was chased on the road and caught by health workers in the south Indian state of Kerala on July 6.


47-year-old Vidhu V T of Chenneerkara, a village located about 10 kms from the town of Pathanamthitta was found loitering at St Peter’s Junction in the town without a mask on July 6 afternoon.

“Our personnel who were deployed in the area as part of the Covid-19 patrol, noticed a man riding a scooter without a mask. On intercepting and questioning him, we came to know that he had returned to Kerala on July 3 from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia,” informed Pathanamthitta Police Inspector Neoman S.

After taking down his home telephone number the police called up his wife who said that her husband had left home in a bad mood after having an argument.

Inspector Neoman further added, “The concerned health department workers were informed and they arrived at the scene to take him to a quarantine facility. However, instead of complying to their request, he started arguing with them.”

The health workers tried to get hold of him, but he escaped their clutches and ran on the road. Somehow, the workers tackle him and wrap his legs and hands by bandage before bundling him off on an ambulance.

“Vidhu has been taken to the government hospital at Kolenchery for quarantine,” said inspector Neoman.
