KANNUR: A 45-year-old man was trampled to death by a wild elephant near Kelakam in the eastern parts of the district. The dead was identified as P Biju of Narikkadavu, near Kelakam. He was among a group of people who went out to burst crackers to scare away the lone wild elephant that had strayed into the Narikkadavu area bordering the Aralam Wildlife Sanctuary. The victim was trampled by the elephant when he fell down, the officials said.

The government has declared a financial assistance of Rs 5 lakh for the family of Biju. Forest Minister K Raju said the government would bear the funeral expenses. He added that efforts to reduce human-animal conflict in Kannur would be stepped up in the wake of the incident. “The place is known for incidents of wild elephants straying into human-inhabited areas and destroying crops,” said District Forest Officer (DFO) Sunil Pameedi, who was visiting the area.
