Konni: A wild attack on a forest ranger who was conducting regular inspections in the forest area. The incident took place at 10 a.m. yesterday at Adichanpara 2009 teak coop within the limits of Kummannur forest station. Sindhu (41) was admitted to a private hospital in Kozhencherry with serious injuries.

Sindhu’s ribs were broken. Section Forest Officer D. Vinod (46) of Kallungkadavu South, Pathanapuram was admitted to Konni Taluk Hospital with first aid for right shoulder injury. Seven people, including a forester, beat forest officers and a watcher, went to the coop for routine inspection. Kompanana was rushing towards them from a nearby forest 100 meters away for testing.

Everyone scattered and ran. Unable to run any further, Vinod lay down between the ledge and the rock. The approaching elephant hit Vinod with a wooden stick. As he lay motionless, the elephant turned towards Sindhu. During the run, Sindhu, who had fallen into a ditch, was beaten with a trunk and dragged away. The elephant withdrew after making a noise. Sindhu is the wife of Iron Sreebhavan Sreejesh.

Lying lifeless, the elephant retreated

Konni: The biggest tragedy in the Katana attack was the head injury. The Katana attack on the forest rangers took place on a high, low and steep slope. Suddenly no one was able to escape. When civilians are caught in front of a lone wolf, they attack by stabbing, trampling, or stabbing them with their trunks. “Fortunately, the elephant did not make such an attack,” Forrester said. Vinod said.

The Adichanpara forest area within the limits of Kummannur Forest Station is rich in forests. VG Shaji (49) was killed on June 13 in the Katana attack on the north slope of Kokkathode Kottampara while going to collect forest resources in the forest. The incident took place at Chempala Karumala, 10 km from Kottampara. Four people, including Shaji, went to the forest. When he returned after collecting the forest resources, he came across a herd of wild elephants and attacked them. The others ran away and escaped.

“I have seen elephants in the jungle many times, but this is the first time the elephant has run so fast. No one had time to move to a safe place. Sindhu, who was lying down, was shouting loudly to get up and run, but could not. -Abdul Latif, Forest Watcher
