Later, the Environment Ministry on Monday said in a tweet that preliminary investigations into the death of a pregnant elephant in Kerala have found that it may have accidentally consumed a fruit-filled with crackers.
The Ministry further noted that locals often resorted to illegal acts of planting fruits filled with explosives to repel wild boars from entering plantation farms.
However, the Ministry had held a meeting with several officials to discuss the progress in the matter, results are still awaited.
