The elephant is believed to have reached out to the jackfruit tree in the farm and accidentally hit the low transiting electric wire with its trunk. While the elephant collapsed from electrocution, the two other elephants left the spot.
On hearing the cries of the elephant, the locals alerted the Forest Department. The elephant was tended to by the forest veterinarian and a team for over 8 hours, but could not be revived. The elephant died on Friday.
