The incident took place on Sunday in Virajpet taluk of Kodagu (Coorg) district. The victim, Ravi Kalaiah, was on his morning walk at around 6.30 a.m. when an elephant suddenly emerged on the roadside and attacked him, said reports.

Dipika Bajpai, a forest service officer, wrote on her twitter handle that the case was booked under section 304-A of the IPC. On a sarcastic note, she asked if a police officer would be booked in case of a crime in his/her area.

After Sunday's incident, people of Balangala village had launched a flash protest against the rising man-animal conflict situations in the district.
