In another tragic incident an adult male wild elephant has been eletrocuted neat Bornadi Wildlife Sanctuary in the night of July 8. According to information the elephant died on spot after it had come in to contact of loosely erected high voltage electric wires. Surprisingly most of all electric lines have been hanging from temporary bamboo poles causing threat to wild elephants as well as people. ASEB is totally inactive in tea garden and forest areas there by allowing tea garden management and common people to take own illegal connection at will. So far five people and two wild elephants lost lives in Udalguri district in June-July period.
