A crocodile killed a 10-year-old girl in Uttar Pradesh's Lakhimpur Kheri district, officials said Friday
The crocodile attacked Anjali, a native of Kaharigarh village, Thursday while she was standing on the edge of the Saryu river in Tikonya town, some 150 km from Lucknow.
"The crocodile pulled away Anjali when she had taken her cattle for grazing," a police officer said.
According to forest officials, crocodiles are usually not found in the part of the river where the girl was attacked.
"But it appears the crocodile that killed the girl was swept down by the flood waters from Nepal," a forest official said.
