A 16-year-old captive elephant, Indrajith, that had shown signs of musth from Monday died at the elephant camp run by the Forest Department at Konni on Wednesday. ... A businessman in Thrissur donated Indrajith to the Kerala Forest Department in 2014, and the elephant was brought to Konni later. The businessman handed over the animal to the Forest Department as it reportedly failed to cooperate with the mahouts.
