Comments / pictures

There is a controversy surrounding elephant Indira, which has reportedly taken the place of another elephant Lakshmi. As per official records, the then Chief Wildlife Warden had granted permission for transporting Lakshmi from Palani to ACT in June 2016. However, an inspection later on found that the animal at ACT had a different microchip number and not Lakshmi’s. Later, its identity was ascertained as Indira, a jumbo belonging to one K Mohanan from Kerala.
