“Justice Will Prevail”: Kerala CM On The Killing Of Pregnant Elephant In The State

Earlier today, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said that the government has taken a “very serious note” of the killing of the elephant in the Velliyar river of Kerala.

Thiruvananthapuram| Three suspects in the killing of a pregnant elephant, which ate a pineapple filled with crackers and died later, have been identified in investigations, the Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan informed. Amid the huge outrage and uproar over the killing, the Kerala CM assured through a Tweet, “Justice will prevail”.

“In a tragic incident in Palakkad district, a pregnant elephant has lost its life. Many of you have reached out to us. We want to assure you that your concerns will not go in vain,” said the Kerala CM.

“An investigation is underway, focusing on three suspects. The police and forest departments will jointly investigate the incident. The district police chief and the district forest officer visited the site today. We will do everything possible to bring the culprits to justice,” he further added.

Earlier today, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said that the government has taken a “very serious note” of the killing of the elephant in the Velliyar river of Kerala.

“We will not leave any stone unturned to investigate properly and nab the culprit(s). This is not an Indian culture to feed firecrackers and kill,” Javadekar said via Twitter.

In a shocking incident of human cruelty, a pregnant wild elephant in Kerala’s Silent Valley Forest fell victim to a man who offered her a pineapple stuffed with powerful crackers. The crackers exploded in her mouth after she chomped on it, senior forest official informed on Tuesday.

“Her jaw was broken and she was unable to eat after she chewed the pineapple and it exploded in her mouth. It is certain that she was offered the pineapple filled with crackers to eliminate her,” Surendrakumar, the Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (Wildlife) and Chief Wildlife Warden, told news agency PTI.

This incident was reported from Attapadi’s fringe area in Silent Valley.

The incident came to the light when Mohan Krishnan, a forest officer, wrote an emotional post on Facebook narrating the death of an elephant in waters of the Velliyar river.
