THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In a high-level meeting, Minister AK Saseendran said that Rs 10 lakh has been handed over to the family of the person who died in a wild elephant attack in Munnar on Tuesday and that one member of the family will be given a temporary job on a daily wage basis.

"The government will decide to provide free treatment to the injured. It has been decided to install AI cameras at more places and strengthen RRT to strengthen surveillance. More lighting will be installed. For this, discussions will be held with the local self-governing bodies and estate owners. Surveillance will be done using drones. A camera with night vision will be used for this. Early warning system will be more effective. The information will also be communicated to the public in Tamil language. Police and forest department will jointly strengthen night patrolling. A core committee of various departments will be formed under the leadership of the District Collector. A coordination committee of police, forest, revenue, local self-government, scheduled caste and tribe departments and a 24-hour command control center will be started to strengthen surveillance and inform the people about the movement of animals. The control room will work under the supervision of the district collector at the Devikulam sub-collector's office," he said.
