Traffic at Attapur on Saturday witnessed something out of the blue as their moments of a standstill at Rajendranagar were due to the spotting of a crocodile near the Musi River. A crocodile's possible appearance can be due to the spells of heavy and untimely rains that hit the city on Friday night and during the day on Saturday, which caused a flood issue at the Himayatsagar and Osmansagar.
People were startled by the existence of this dangerous amphibian in such close quarters and were curious to get a closer look at the animal. From whatever angle, people put their mobile to work and captured images and videos of the sighting.
This was indeed putting the traffic to a halt which was later intercepted by the police. By the time Forest Department and police reached the spot to do the needful, the crocodile had disappeared into the river stream.
Multiple locations in the city saw some really head aching traffic as there was no movement whatsoever at major junctions, which worsened during another brief shower of rain on Saturday evening. To protect people and not to fuel their curiosity anymore, the Rajendranagar Police have urged people not to venture out on any unwanted purposes and are on strict vigilance against the offenders and also in spotting the creature if it shows up on the banks of the river.
