Elephant attack

Unni, son of Devarolikal Baby, had gone out to repair a water pipeline when he was reportedly attacked by the elephant. The pipeline is located near the forest border, and the incident occurred at 7:30 a.m.

Unni was later found seriously injured by a rubber tapping worker and local residents rushed him to the Puttamkal taluk hospital. He was later shifted to the Kannur Government Medical College Hospital.

Residents have expressed concern over wild elephant menace in the area, which is in close proximity to tourist destinations like Ranipuram and the Karnataka forest border. While incidents of crop destruction by elephants are widespread, this was the first incident in the region in which a person came under the attack of the animal.
