Raj Bhawsar, Founder of the GSPCA told ANI, that it was likely that the reptile had come away from its natural habitat due to the city experiencing heavy rainfall.
The Indian Express had reported in July about how a crocodile was trapped after he attacked and killed a 54-year-old woman from Mahadevpura village in Waghodia taluka, who was washing clothes on the banks of the river.
