An eight-year-old girl was allegedly attacked and eaten by a crocodile near Sukkur’s Nara Canal on Friday, the police confirmed.

According to her father, Gulbahar Khaskheli, the girl had gone to the river near Taj Farm village in Salehpat with her friends to wash clothes when the crocodile suddenly attacked her and then dragged her into the water.

Other people present at the accident site claimed that the crocodile was more than 16 feet long and ate the girl.

“We called rescue officials and the police but they reached the site six hours after the incident,” Khaskheli. The body has yet to be found.

The child’s parents have asked the government to help them.

“No one is looking for our daughter. We are doing it ourselves,” said the mother. “I just want my daughter and nothing else.”

Mukhtiyarkar Zahid Shah said that the attack occurred at night because of which they weren’t able to look for the body properly. “We have asked the Pakistan Navy to help us,” he added.

According to the Sindh Wildlife Department, more than 300 crocodiles of various species live in the canal. The Nara Canal is a delta channel built on the left bank of the Indus River in Sindh.
