KUCHING: A giant crocodile captured in Sungai Nyabut, Kampung Trombol recently, was not the one that snatched seven-year-old Mohammad Adami Moktar last Saturday (May 21).
This was revealed following an autopsy made by Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC) personnel under a bridge at Kampung Trombol at 9.30 am today (May 26).
No signs of human remains were found in the reptile’s stomach and the carcass was disposed of by the corporation.
Following the autopsy results, the search and rescue (SAR) operation for the missing boy will be continued along the river by the authorities.
On Wednesday (May 25), the 4.3-metre-long crocodile was captured after it was caught in one of the crocodile traps set up by the Samarahan Crocodile Hunters (SCH).
The reptile was later brought to the riverbank at around 7pm. The locals initially hoped that the crocodile was the one that attacked Adami.
Last Tuesday (May 24), 17 crocodile traps were installed along the river at Kampung Trombol to capture crocodiles.
