Akbar Salubiro reportedly went missing on Sunday at night after he left home to harvest palm oil in a remote village on the island of west Sulawesi, Indonesia.
The lifeless body of a man who went missing a few days ago has been found inside a python’s stomach right at the diseased man’s garden.
When he failed to return, relatives and friends got disturbed and started looking for him. “Initially, Akbar set out from his home to go harvest palm. After not returning to his home, people started looking for him,” says Satriawan, his close neighbour.
According Salubiro Junaidi, the village’s secretary, the locals, who were already in the process of searching for Akbar, were alarmed by loud screams and cries emanating from the palm grove where they discovered a giant python. “When it was captured, the boots Akbar was wearing were clearly visible in the stomach of the snake,” says Junaidi.
