An unfortunate incident was reported today where an 18 year old was attacked and killed by a crocodile.

The deceased is a grade 12 student of the Paalatuwa Gunarathana Maha Vidyalaya.

The girl was attacked this morning when she was washing her face in the Nilwala River.

Deputy Chairman of the Iranian and South Asian region of the World Crocodile Conservation Committee Anslem De Silva stated that there has been an increase in the number of crocodile attacks in the Nilwala River during the recent weeks.

Speaking to our news team he added that people’s negligence is the main reason for these attacks.



However, people living on the banks of the Nilwala River allege there are insufficient measures put in place to protect them from these animals.

They also allege that the measures that have been put in place are not to adequate standards.
