Forest officials were busy monitoring a herd, and did not realise that one male had strayed
A seven-year-old male elephant was mowed down by a passenger train in Titabar in Jorhat district on Wednesday.
The incident took place soon after the animal got separated from its herd and came towards railway track without the knowledge of the field staff, who were busy controlling another larger herd.

front luggage-cum-parcel van of the Guwahati–Ledo Intercity Express derailed after hitting the animal at a spot between Titabar and Mariani stations under Tinsukia division of the Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR). The train was running at 60km per hour when the incident took place.
“The herd, from which the elephant got separated, was taking shelter in Bokaholla tea estate. The herd then split into smaller groups. Our team
was trying to control another herd when the incident took place,” divisional forest officer of Jorhat Davinder Suman said.
“Officials of the NFR and the forest department communicate regularly through a WhatsApp group. But the field staff didn’t realise when this lone elephant got separated from its herd and climbed onto the track,” she added.
This is the second incident of an elephant being killed by a train in this area this year. The first incident took place in February.
The NFR authorities said all passengers got off the train soon after the incident. Senior officials of the Tinsukia division reached the site immediately with a relief train. The stretch was restored at 7.45am. The stranded train left the site around 8.06am.
“While prima facie investigation suggests that the train was within its stipulated speed, a departmental inquiry has been ordered,” an NFR statement said.
Movement of elephants has increased manifold in the area in the recent past. Trains are constantly asked to slow down whenever any information of herd movement is shared with the railway by the forest department. This is a notified elephant corridor for the forest department but not for the railways.
“As many as 200 such incidents have been prevented this year alone owing to a close coordination between the field staff of both the forest department and the NFR,” the statement added.

elephant that was killed was a sub-adult member of one of the herds of jumbos that in recent times have been straying out of the Hollongapar Gibbon Wildlife Sanctuary Sanctuary – under Mariani range of the Forest department – and creating havoc in villages, tea estates in the periphery areas of the sanctuary in Mariani.
The DFO said last night the anti-depredation squad of the department along with the assistance of several group of villagers were chasing elephants away from paddy fields at several locations. One group of the jumbos was crossing the railway tracks when the train came and one animal failed to cross over and was run over by the train and killed. She said that the site of the incident was not under the notified train speed reduction zone that is declared by the government in elephant corridors areas to ensure smooth movement of the elephants.

Despite efforts by rail and forest authorities to prevent elephant deaths on tracks incidents of elephants getting killed by trains have continued in Assam. Sixteen pachyderms were killed in such accidents in 2016 and last year, the toll was 12.

“One coach of the train came off the tracks due to the impact of the accident. But since the train was going at a slow speed,

it didn’t overturn and nothing happened to the passengers,” inspector Kalyan Gogoi, in-charge of Titabor police station, said.
Police said the incident happened around 4:30 am when a herd of elephants was trying to cross the railway track at Letekujan, nearly 311 km east from the state capital Guwahati.
Train services were affected for over three hours while the railway staff put the derailed wheels of the coach back on track.
Despite efforts by rail and forest authorities to prevent elephant deaths on tracks incidents of elephants getting killed by trains have continued in Assam. Sixteen pachyderms were killed in such accidents in 2016 and last year, the toll was 12.
In February this year, five elephants were killed when a passenger train hit a herd crossing the rail tracks in Hojai district of central Assam.
Five elephants, including a pregnant female, were killed in December last year when the Guwahati-Naharlagun Donyi Polo Express hit a herd crossing the tracks near Balipara in Sonitpur district.
Three weeks earlier, two more pachyderms were killed by a speeding Awadh Assam Express at Thakurkuchi, 19 km from Guwahati.
Wild elephants come out of forests around this time of the year in search of food and sometimes they get hit by trains while crossing tracks.
As per a 2011 census, there are 5,620 wild elephants in Assam, the highest among all the states.
