Kerala administration has arrested 3 individuals in the matter of the death of the pregnant elephant. The accused have been identified as Renjith, Animon and Sharath, all natives of Karavoor.
Talking to India TV about the incident, Maneka Gandhi had said, "around 600 elephants die each year in Kerala, and these elephants do not even belong to the state but are brought from Assam, Bihar and Odisha."
