Elephant enters farm, destroys crops near Marayur
Marayur: A lone tusker entered farms at Melkarimutii and Chemmankuzhi and destroyed coconut, arecanut and plantain trees.
The tusker visited in the night after passing through the SC/ST colony at Melkarimutti.
The plantain farm of Manikantan at Chemmankuzhi and the coconut and arecanut farms of Mathukutty were destroyed by the tusker.
The locals hope that Kumki elephants that drive out wild elephants at Kundakkad, will arrive in Marayur to keep away the wild elephants creating havoc at Karimutti and Indira Nagar areas.
