So huge, isn't it? If you too are wondering, how the lady would have caught it, a report states she jumped into the water when she saw it floating in the river. It took her much efforts to pull it onto to the riverbank. Locals around helped her to get to the market, where all her efforts definitely paid off. At almost Rs.6200 per kg, she sold the whole fish for Rs 3 lakh. She clearly had good luck on her side.
