JAMSHEDPUR/JHARSUGUDA: Four elephants were killed after being run over by a train between Bamra and Bagdihi railway stations in Jharsuguda of Odisha, close to West Singhbum district of Jharkhand, in the early hours of Monday.
According to Sanjay Ghosh, the chief public relations officer of the South Eastern Railway, the Howrah-Mumbai Mail 12810 hit the jumbos at 3.30am and the driver of the train reported the matter to the Jharsuguda station master at 3.45am.
The jumbos killed included a tusker, one female and two calves (one male and one female). They were hit by the train at Teladiah level-crossing under Chakradharpur railway division limits while scouring for food.
"We have constituted an inquiry committee under the ARM Bondamunda to investigate the matter," Chakradharpur senior divisional commercial manager Bhaskar said.
Soon after the incident, rescue and relief teams from Bandamunda and Chakradharpur rushed to the incident site. During their operation, train traffic on the down line was suspended. Traffic was partially operational on the up line till the affected down line was restored at 7.40 am. Forest officials said the incident site is an elephant corridor.
I think if the government does not wake up and stop routing traffic through national parks, a lot of wildlife is going to get killed. Probably hundreds of
elephants and other large animals die every year due to road accidents. Just horrible.
