A crocodile which was found in the Musi river near the Attapur area of the Rajendra Nagar Assembly constituency created a flutter among the residents of the area.
Local residents informed the zoo officials about the crocodile, and sought their support for its shifting to the zoo.
The authorities said that the crocodile might have?gotten washed out from the Osman Sagar reservoir. (The Musi river was flooded recently due to the release of water from the twin reservoirs - Osman Sagar and Himayath Sagar.)
Locals also said that they had found two crocodile corpses in their area in the past.
