A tusker died near Kundapal in Bahalpadar gram panchayat under Hatilimunda Forest Range on Thursday.

Sources said the tusker had sustained bullet injuries on his leg and thigh and was ailing due to the wounds. Although Forest officials had provided treatment, there was no improvement in the elephant’s condition. It is suspected that poachers might have fired at the elephant for tusk injuring him badly.

The tusker was buried at the spot after autopsy was performed on it.
