Gruesome death of elephant Ranga: Owner of the private bus had filed a petition in Court to lift night ban in forests

Mysuru:  The ‘Kalpaka’ bus, which knocked down elephant Ranga known as ‘Rowdy Ranga,’ in the wee hours of yesterday in the vicinity of Mathigodu Elephant Camp (under Nagarahole National Park) belongs to the person who has filed a petition in the Court to lift night ban in forest areas, according to sources in the Forest Department.

The State Government, in a bid to protect wildlife from roadkills during night, has banned night traffic at Bandipur, Nagarahole and other reserve forests. Similarly, traffic is banned on the stretch of road to Kerala that passes through Bandipur Reserve Forest from 9 pm to 6 am.

The Kerala Government had knocked the doors of Supreme Court urging it to lift the ban as it would affect the business in Kerala and the owner of Kalpaka bus too had filed a petition at Supreme Court on the same issue, sources said.

    It is time Courts of India start treating wild animal killing same as killing a human, after all lives are equal. If the deforestation and wild animal killing goes unabated, the future generation will see Indian forests and wild animals in archived films.
