According to Hindustan Times, the body of the 25-year-old man identified as Akbar was found when local people cut open the 23-foot python after it was found bloated and slithering awkwardly in the village of Salubiro, on the eastern island of Sulawesi on Monday, March 27, 2017.

“We were immediately suspicious that the snake had swallowed Akbar because around the site, we found palm fruit, his harvesting tool, and a boot,” a senior village official, Junaidi, told reporters.

Worried by the absence of Akbar after he had gone to his plantation on Sunday, his relatives launched a search for him to no avail.
