Five elephants hit by train die in Assam

PTI, TEZPUR,  DECEMBER 10, 2017: Five elephants, including a pregnant one, were killed in the early hours of Sunday after a train hit a herd of seven in Sonitpur district of Assam.

The incident took place at Bamgaon Tea Estate in the Chariduar police station area near Balipara at 1.30 a.m., forest officials said.

The herd was trying to cross the tracks between the Rangapara and Dhalaibil stations when the Guwahati-Naharlagun Intercity Express hit them, Chief Conservator of Forest (Northern Range) P. Shiv Kumar said.

”Four female elephants, including a pregnant one, and a male jumbo were killed on the spot, The premature unborn calf came out from its mother’s belly due to the massive impact. The forest officials were trying to locate the other two elephants, which were part of the herd. The dead elephants were cremated after post-mortem examination,” he said.

Wild elephants often come out of the nearby Nameri National Park in search of food, he added.

In the last couple of days, a herd of around 70 elephants strayed into the area, near the accident site, a forest official said.
