PATHANAMTHITTA: Ten lakh rupees will be handed over to the family of the deceased, Biju, today. Locals have called off the protest. The decision was made after discussions with the Collector. Following the discussion, MP Anto Antony also addressed the media on the issue.

‘The compensation amount of ten lakhs will be given to the family today. The Collector will submit the committee's recommendation to the Government for compensation of Rs 50 lakh. A temporary job will be offered to one of the family members of the deceased as soon as possible, with recommendations for it to become permanent later. The process of setting up systems like solar fencing to separate forest and land areas will be initiated as soon as possible,’ said Anto Antony.

Biju was killed in an attack by a wild elephant at two o'clock this morning. The elephant rushed towards Biju when he stepped out of the house with headlights to chase it away. His wife, Daisy, informed the media that she and her husband had gone out together to chase the elephant.

Biju was found dead 50 meters away from the house. The locals refused to remove the body from the site. They stated that they would not permit the body to be moved until District Collector Prem Krishna arrives.
