Plea seeking Tk 1cr compensation for elephant’s death rejected

রবিবার, ২৮ আগস্ট ২০১৬

28 August 2016 The High Court today rejected a writ petition seeking its directive upon the government to collect Tk 1 crore in compensation from the officials concerned who were responsible for the death of the Indian elephant.

The HC bench of Justice Obaidul Hassan and Justice Krishna Devnath passed the rejection order considering that the petition was not submitted properly.

The court said an inquiry committee has been formed to probe the cause of death of the elephant and its post mortem was conducted, petitioner’s lawyer Eunus Ali Akond told The Daily Star.

The Indian elephant, Bangabahadur, whose journey from India to Bangladesh was widely chronicled, died in Jamalpur on August 16.

Eunus Ali Akond, a Supreme Court lawyer, on August 18 filed the writ petition with the High Court.

The wild elephant fought against all odds, swam over 300km in rivers and moved frantically from one char to another in the Jamuna (Brahmaputra). He struggled to survive for 50 days. But in the end, Bangabahadur was tranquilised, chained and half buried in muddy water when he died.
