PAKKAM: Governor Arif Mohammed Khan visited the homes of those killed in the wild elephant attacks and the student who was seriously injured in the attack. The Governor reached the house of Ajeesh in Padamala around 9.30 in the morning. The Governor, who spent half an hour in the house, talked to Ajeesh's children and relatives. The family explained the attack by wild animals to the Governor.

The family members said that wild animals often reach the populated areas just like how cattle graze. Even though the forest department officials come to the area, they are not able to provide a solution to the issue of wild animal attacks.

By 10.15 am, the Governor reached the house of Paul, the temporary employee of Kuruva Island who was killed by a wild elephant. He then talked to family members for 20 minutes in front of the house. Relatives said that Paul did not get the necessary treatment at the Wayanad Medical College.

The Governor also visited Sarath, the ninth-standard student who was seriously injured in the attack by a wild elephant. Sarath expressed his desire to study. 'Kerala Kaumudi' had recently reported about Sarath's miserable condition. The Governor later visited the house of Prajesh, who was mauled to death by a tiger in Vakeri.

Will seek solution: Governor

The Governor later said in a review meeting held at Bishop House that the issues related to wildlife conflict will be brought to the attention of the central and state governments and appropriate action will be demanded. He added that the public should exercise restraint and violence is not the answer to anything.
