SRI AMAN: A dead timber worker found with his left hand severed and bodily injuries may have been a victim of a crocodile attack here.
Police did not rule out the possibility after the body was found two days ago at Sungai Enciap Pantu not far from where he was swimming on Wednesday night.
District Police Chief Deputy Superintendent Mat Jusoh Muhamad said the deceased was identified as Aladin Sebli, 55.
"We believe the man was attacked by a crocodile while swimming in the river," he said adding that investigations revealed Aladin went for a dip at 9pm on Wednesday night.
