Friday - April 19, 2019 10:06 pm , Category : SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY
Dehradun, April 19 (IANS) Two elephants were killed after they were hit by a train in Jwalapur area of Haridwar district early on Friday, a forest department official said.
The Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) Akash Kumar Verma said the incident occurred at around 4 a.m. when the Nanda Devi Express hit the elephants who were crossing the tracks.
While one tusker was stated to be around 25-30 years of age, the other elephant was a sub-adult, Verma said.
A case has been registered in this regard.
Since the area is outside the reserved forest, the DFO said the case against the train driver will only be registered after a thorough investigation.
"This is basically a civilian area and there is no speed limit regulation for trains. We will investigate the matter and accordingly proceed further," Verma said.
