Madhubani, Bihar - In an extraordinary turn of events, two local fishermen from Madhubani, Harikishore Sahni and Sudhan Sahni, have made headlines after catching a colossal fish weighing 125 kg. The incident occurred at a river canal in Jhanjharpur, Madhubani, where the fishermen had gone for their routine fishing activity.

According to the Local 18 report, Harikishore and Sudhan were preparing to cast their nets when they sensed something enormous in the water. Acting on their instinct, they called out to the nearby boatmen for assistance. A group of boatmen quickly responded and joined the fishermen in the river to investigate further. They too felt the presence of a massive creature in the water, prompting them to call for additional help to intensify the search efforts.


Their combined efforts paid off when they finally managed to trap the gigantic fish in a net. Sudhan Sahni, still in awe of the sight, recounted the struggle, saying, "It took about 10 sailors to control this fish. Only after that, it was trapped in a net and taken out." Once weighed, the fish tipped the scales at an astonishing 125 kg. Currently, the fish has been carefully placed in Sudhan's bathtub.

The news of this remarkable catch quickly spread throughout Madhubani, becoming the talk of the town. Throngs of curious locals, as well as people from neighboring areas, flocked to the river canal to catch a glimpse of the enormous fish. Amidst the excitement, people began speculating about the value of the fish, with many attempting to estimate its worth and propose bids. However, the fishermen have refused to entertain any bids for their catch.


The species of the fish remains unidentified, adding to the intrigue. Various assumptions are circulating among the locals, with some referring to it as the "big fish of the river," while others speculate that it might belong to a foreign species. There is a belief that such species might have found their way into the Madhubani river canal through the river's flow.

As the story continues to captivate the community, experts and enthusiasts alike are eager to uncover the mystery behind this extraordinary catch. For now, Harikishore and Sudhan's incredible feat has firmly placed them in the local limelight, with their 125 kg fish becoming a symbol of fascination and wonder in Madhubani.
