Forest Minister Dindugal Sreenivasan, told they are trying to recapture the elephant. “The elephant has been entering villages in the last few days even after translocation and has crossed over 80 km. Now the animal has stationed itself near Udumalpet. The government has a larger role to protect the lives of the people and their agricultural fields. There is no other option left now but to capture the animal and tame it to be used as a kumki.”

As per the order, two kumki elephants have been dispatched to Chinnathambi’s current spot to guide him back to the forest.
