Sources from Raipur stated that an entire village in Chhattisgarh assembled to bid an emotional adieu to a crocodile, whom they used to worship as their protector, after the animal died. Meanwhile for residents of Bawa Mohtara village in Bemetara district, the around 130 year old crocodile, whom they had fondly named as 'Gangaram', was next to God.



Furthermore after the reptile died in a village pond, the grief stricken residents took out its funeral procession and did not cook food that day. Reports added they also decided to set up a memorial on the pond's bank where it was buried, sarpanch (village head) Mohan Sahu told, adding that they were also thinking of constructing a temple in its memory. Accordingly the 3.4 meter long crocodile was found dead on Tuesday in the village pond, located around 80 km from here, following which locals informed the forest department and the carcass was taken out of water.
