Blade in Thechikottukavu Ramachandran's feed a hoax story: probe team
Thrissur: The team probing the allegation of finding pieces of blade in the feed prepared for temple elephant 'Gajaratnam' Thechikottukavu Ramachandran as part of the rejuvenation therapy termed the whole episode a hoax.
They assume that the hostility between mahouts resulted in such a story doing rounds.
Depressed over the grilling by police officials, Shibu, the main mahout of the elephant, had committed suicide.
Elephant lovers had come out with protest following reports that a whole blade and four more pieces were found in the feed prepared for Thechikottukavu Ramachandran.
