Assam: Elephant handed over to Kaziranga National Park authorities for killing teenager

Police registered a case under Section 304A of IPC and gave the elephant along with her eight-month-old calf to Kaziranga National Park for safe custody

Golaghat (Assam): A female elephant was handed over to the authorities of Kaziranga National Park on Thursday after the animal allegedly killed a 14-year-old boy in Bokakhat of Assam‘s Golaghat district, the police said.

Police registered a case under Section 304A of the IPC (causing death by negligence) and gave the jumbo along with her eight-month-old calf to the KNP for safe custody, they said.

The female elephant, ‘Dulumoni’, allegedly trampled Bitu Gaud to death two days ago, prompting the police to seize the mother-calf duo and register the case, a senior official said.

When contacted, KNP Director P Sivakumar told PTI that the young boy most likely tried to tease the calf and it must have instigated the mother to kill him.

The elephant, who reportedly took the life of another person last year, belongs to Jiten Gogoi, a two-time former MLA.
