The elephant, called Battalik, died after it was allegedly tranquilized thrice while it was in musth. The incident happened during a joint operation by forest officials and Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) members. According to reports earlier, the pachyderm was given sedatives in excess along with other medicines, which were believed to have caused adverse reactions.
