NAGERCOIL: Arikomban, rogue tusker translocated from Chinnakanal, has started to get along with the herd of elephants in the Tamil Nadu forest. The elephant is stationed in Upper Kothayar forest. This is a pleasant news for elephant lovers. Arikomban has a slight change in his name among Tamil people and is known as 'Arisikomban'. The Kerala Forest Department initially released the captured tusker in the Periyar Tiger Sanctuary.

The Tamil Nadu forest department later captured the tusker, after it made its way into human settlement, and released it in the Mundanthura tiger sanctuary.

According to the Tamil Nadu forest department, Arikomban's radio collar has been emitting signals. The tusker, which grew up in the Kerala forest, took about two months to adapt to the Tamil Nadu forest. The Tamil Nadu Forest Department says that the elephant had some health problems but is now fully healthy.
