A passenger train has ploughed into and killed five elephants of a herd crossing railroad tracks.
Mr. J.D. Sharma, chief conservator of the state’s wildlife department, accused the railroad authorities of ignoring his department’s warning that trains should slow down because a herd of elephants was moving in the area.
Dozens of elephants have died in India in recent years after being struck while crossing train tracks that often run through national parks and forests.
