A yellow monitor, locally known as holdey guisap, was released into a water body in the town on Wednesday evening, an hour after it was rescued.
The yellow monitor was trapped by a current net while some locals were fishing in the water body around 5:30pm.
Knowing about the matter, a team of Save the Nature, an environment-friendly organisation in the town, went to the area and got down on knee deep water and rescued the lizard from the current net. The lizard sustained minor injury on its right leg.
Around 6:30pm, the members of the organisation released it into the water body.
It is sona gui or holdey gui, commonly called yellow monitor or common lizard. It's length is around 1.5 feet, said Rokon Zaman, a member of Save the Nature.
