WAYANAD: Footages are going viral showing locals forcefully taking out the dead remains of Ajeesh, who was trampled to death by a rogue elephant in Mananthavady on Saturday. The hospital staff tried to stop them but failed. Locals were angry because the government and the forest department could not take necessary action even hours after Ajeesh's death.

“There would have been more doctors available if it had been a stray dog that died” the locals were seen blaring in anger while moving out from the hospital.

At the same time, Ajeesh's father, Joseph, had come forward to severely criticize the Forest Department and Forest Minister AK Saseendran. Joseph demanded the resignation of the irresponsible minister and made him remember that it was human votes, not votes from elephants that helped him win the elections. Joseph also lamented the charade of ministers giving promises after every such horrible incident.

“He left behind two children studying in 8th and 4th. How will we live? The forest department failed to alert us when the elephant entered the human habitat. The government should stop deceiving the people” Joseph said.

“We are not able to live here doing farming. Even if a deer is killed, the forest department will file a case. No one even comes to inquire about a man's death. With such biased rules and governance, they are killing people inch by inch” said Joseph.
