New Delhi, June 4 (HS): The Minister for Environment and Forests Prakash Javadekar on Thursday assured that he would leave no stone unturned in catching those behind the sinful act of killing a pregnant elephant in Mallapuram in Kerala.

”Central Government has taken a very serious note of the killing of an elephant in Mallapuram, Kerala. We will not leave any stone unturned to investigate properly and nab the culprit(s). This is not ur Indian culture to feed firecrackers and kill animals,” the Minister said.

The incident came to light after a forest officer narrated the details of the horrific death on social media. An elephant that was pregnant died in Kerala, standing in water last Wednesday, after she ate a pineapple filled with firecrackers, allegedly left by some locals. The fruit exploded in her mouth, killing her on the spot.
