Gujarat Teen Behind 'Mr Dalit' Campaign Faked The Attack, Police Says

  Gujarat Teen Behind 'Mr Dalit' Campaign Faked The Attack, Police Says <p>Protests reached Gujarat capital Gandhinagar after the blade attack on Digant was reported.</p>The police have now alleged that 17-year-old Digant has admitted he faked the attack "because he wanted media attention". He allegedly asked two school friends to slash him with a blade.

The attack occurred near where a five-year-old boy was taken and killed by a 4.3-metre crocodile from a swamp in 2009 and a 43-year-old woman was killed by a five-metre croc while swimming in a creek in 1985. London police rule out terrorism after car crashes into pedestrians.

A woman is missing and feared dead after a crocodile attacked her while she was swimming with a friend in Australia, police said Monday. The local area was “well-known for crocodiles ,” he added. "Be croc wise … you need to be very aware of what you're doing."

A hunt for a crocodile suspected of snatching an elderly woman at a creek in northern Australia is under way.

Anne Cameron's clothes, walking stick and what appeared to be human remains were found near the creek bank on Thursday.

They were discovered two days after the 79-year-old went missing - just one mile away from her nursing home at Port Douglas in Queensland.
