Wild elephant kills pilgrim at Sabarimala
Seethathodu: A wild elephant trampled a Sabarimala pilgrim to death on the Azhutha- Pamba road. The incident happened at Vallithodu at 4 early morning. The Tamil Nadu native was resting between his journey when he was attacked by the elephant.
The victim Bhadrasan is a Coimbatore native. Arrangements are being made to shift the man’s body to a mortuary.
The forest officers have banned pilgrims from trekking through the spot where the incident took place as there are wild elephants present. Due to this, the officers found it hard to reach the spot after the incident. The pilgrims who were on the path have been shifted to a safe location. Steps have been taken to take these pilgrims to Pamba in a KSRTC bus.
