A video filmed by locals at the river showed the crocodile swimming away and disappearing after pulling the body of Mr Diwan down into the river.


A search for the victim was launched by forest officials with assistance from the local administration.



Deputy conservator of forests, Ravirajsinh Rathod said that the victim's shoulders had been torn apart by the crocodile when they found it at around 10pm, however, he said it was not yet clear how he ended up in the river in the first place.



He said: "We are trying to find out how the victim ended up in the river, as locals witnessed the attack only after he was already inside the water."
