Operation by Rapid Response Team (RRT) of the forest department today being the third day to capture Belur Makhna , a tusk less wild elephant that killed a 45-year-old farmer at Chaligaddha near here on Feb 10, proved futile. Though the forest officials shot the Captor-gun at the wicked elephant to tranquilize it and bring under control was not successful, the Chief Conservator of forests said here.

The elephant was not in a stationary position at the bog of the thick forest and it was in a moving position in the forest, the sources said.
The enraged public continue their protest against the inaction on the part of the appropriate authorities.
