Malkangiri(Odisha): A man had the scare of his life on Wednesday when he found a full-grown crocodile sleeping right inside his house at Munsa village in Malkangiri block, forest officials said.

The 12-foot long crocodile, weighing around 500 kg, was suspected to have sneaked in from the nearby Sitaguda dam, forest officials said.

Dasarathi Padiami was petrified on seeing the huge reptile in his house and immediately rushed outside along with his wife, the officials said.

Hearing Padiami's cries for help, villagers gathered and broke the asbestos roof to rescue the children. They then captured the crocodile and tied it to a tree, an official said.
