A rogue elephant was shot dead in Taljhari forest of the Sahibgunj district in Jharkhand

Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (PCCF), Wildlife, L R Singh, said: "The team managed to track down the elephant around 6 pm near Banjhi Santhali village in Taljhari Block of Sahibganj district". The rocky terrain and thick vegetation and visibility of just 15 feet of Sahibganj district made it impossible for capturing the elephant.

Attacks by wild elephants are common in India, and government reports say more than 300 people are killed each year by them.

LR Singh said that they would kill the elephant anytime soon now that hunter Nawab Shafat is on its trail.

An Indian elephant that has killed 15 people since March was finally killed Friday night.

Redskins shelve Murphy, sign Staples for receiver help
Trent Murphy's uphill climb to get ready for the 2017 Washington Redskins' season just got a lot steeper. In two seasons with the Cardinals, he had 73 receptions for 1,253 yards and five touchdowns.

The wildlife wing of the Jharkhand forest department had on Thursday evening issued a shoot-at-sight order after finding no alternative to protect the elephant.

The marauding elephant likely wandered from its herd and became lost, straying into villages where the killings took place. "Something must be done", Singh said, referring to one of the poorest indigenous tribal communities in eastern India.

Khan has been flown in from the southern city of Hyderabad to kill the prey. "He has vast experience in shooting such rogue animals and that's why he has been given the responsibility to shoot the elephant", he said.

In 2014, Khan was licensed by the northern state of Uttar Pradesh to capture or kill a man-eating tiger that was believed to have killed eight people.

The elephant was buried in the forest early on Saturday.
