“Railways have done enough for elephants”

Staff Reporter

KOLKATA: Even as another elephant was run-over by a train not far from the spot where seven others were crushed by a train in a single incident, Railways Minister Mamata Banerjee insisted here on Tuesday that the Railways had taken adequate measures and the onus was on the State's Forest department to prevent these deaths.

A day after a tusker was seriously injured in a collision with a goods train, another elephant was run-over by the Mahananda Express on Monday night. The male elephant was found near the Rahimpur tea garden, a spot that was about eight kilometres from the site where seven elephants had been killed in a single incident in September.
