On the morning of November 19, he went down to see the fish nets, which were about 10 meters away, and saw them submerged. He went into the water and pulled them out to look and saw a crocodile stuck in a net.
The man confirmed that after seeing the crocodile trapped in the net he waited until it died. Then he took out the crocodile and brought it to the land, and found it weighed around 15 kg.
