Desperate and do-or-die attempt of a lover saved her husband from the jaws of a large crocodile. The battle took place in the Mridangabhanga rivulet of Sundarban delta, inside West Bengal, India.
In the calm morning of 5th October fisherman Hasibul was busy in the rivulet as usual and his wife Aansura was standing beside the river. Suddenly, a crocodile grabbed his left leg and started pulling him deep inside water. Stunned initially, Aansura leaped into the water with a piece of bamboo stick and somehow managed to mount upon the animal. Hasibul was still fighting for his life. When repeated beating on the head of the crocodile failed to free her husband, she penetrated the stick to one eye of the attacker. Bewildered and hurt, the animal released severely wounded Hasibul and retreated.
Hasibul later got back his sense and at present recovering in a local hospital at Patharpratima, in the South 24 Pargana District of West Bengal.
