    MLA Padma Hazarika Sets Off For ‘Mission Laden’

    A few days back, Laden killed five persons in a single night in a state of 'musth', which is caused by a sudden rise in reproductive hormones

    If Osama bin Laden, the notorious leader of the terror outfit al-Qaeda gave sleepless nights to the White House, an elephant named after him is wreaking havoc in Assam’s Goalpara.

    The rogue male, a tuskless elephant who was nicknamed Laden by the locals, has killed at least 70 people, destroyed paddy fields, damaged houses over the last six years in the district. A few days back, Laden killed five persons in a single night in a state of ‘musth’, which is caused by a sudden rise in reproductive hormones.

    Ever since then, the Assam government has launched a mission to capture and translocate the pachyderm far away from human settlement. On November 11th, 2019, Sootea MLA Padma Hazarika also joined the team at Goalpara’s Ronjuli to catch the elephant.

    Drones are being used to locate the elephant and on November 1st, 2019, the elephant was located at Chatabari reserve forest on the western side of Goalpara. MLA Hazarika has also lent his trained elephant to help capture laden.

    The forest officials said that the elephant which was in ‘musth’ last week, has started calming down. As per reports, three forest teams are attempting to tranquillise the animal. More than five domesticated elephants have been brought in to capture the elephant.

    Assam Forest Minister Parimal Suklabaidya had earlier said that the elephant would be tranquilized and translocated to a safer location. “Before translocating the jumbo, it will be radio-collared so that we can monitor its movement,” he said.
