The fishermen in Gopalnagar in Tehatta got a surprise catch in their fishing net on Saturday evening while fishing in the river Jalangi. While pulling the net they felt a heavy weight expecting big catch of fish. But, to their horror it turned to be two  crocodiles. However, one managed to escape while the other, four and half ft animal was remained trapped inside the fishing net. The brave fishermen managed to control the angry reptile tying it with a rope entangling around its neck.
