Assam: Villagers beat up a baby elephant to death in a village in Morigaon district, villagers were trying to chase away the elephant and local Police along with forest officials were present during crime, hence all concerned officials be placed under suspension and booked for the violation of the 120-B, 428 - 429 IPC read with the section 9, 39 and 51 of Wild Life Protection Act, 1972 and PCA Act, 1960.
Seven helpless elephants were killed this week by a speeding goods train. But this terrible slaughter could have be prevented.
The massacre site in Jalpaiguri is a jumbo corridor where trains are required to provide safe crossing to the elephants. Negligent train drivers have killed 150 elephants since 1987, despite repeated calls to enforce safety measures. Only a deafening outcry from citizens could push the Railway Minister to take urgent action.
It is time to put an end to this carnage -- the Environment and Railway Ministers meet next week . Let's build a massive movement to protect our elephants. Sign the petition for accountability and safety and send this to everyone -- it will be delivered directly to the Railway Minister:
