The true story of this accident is some thing else than what is published here. The man in question is a Poacher, who entered the lake on a tube to lay his net and accidentally stepped on the submerged reptile. The Crock attacked only once and did not pursue and that is what saved this man’s life.
The real part of the tragedy is not this crocodile attack but the very ill-informed attempt to beautify the Powai lake by authorities. In a bid to de-silt the Hiranandani corner of the lake, all small islands which hitherto were basking and breeding places for these reptiles were destroyed and now these creatures does not have any place. Till now there was no crock attack recorded in Powai but now I think this is the first danger bells ringing. If we go on perusing very ill informed and unnecessary destruction in the name of development, these accidents are bound to happen.
May god bless us all;
you so bang on right in past one year only we saw the devastation If remember I also posted a pick of crock taken by Allan against the back drop of that damn Hirnandani complex . These guys are quite harmless other wise remember the night partner when he almost came to our machaan . you and me must have seen them at close hand number of times so have other members at powai and not once we have felt threaten .
They talk about creating facilities and beautifying the area this what happened. Not a single person in the authority gives a damn truly god bless us all
