Hyderabad, Sep 27 (IANS) A baby crocodile surfaced from an open drain in Hyderabad during rains that lashed the city on Wednesday evening.

The reptile came out of the drain in Chintal Basti in Khairatabad, triggering panic among local residents in the area in the heart of the city.

People were in for a shock when the young crocodile crawled out of the drain which was in spate due to the downpour.
