Taking a serious note about wild elephants trampling to death four people in Kolar and Bangalore Rural districts recently, the High Court asked officials concerned to take steps to solve man-elephant conflict.

A Division Bench issued directions while hearing a public interest litigation which was suo motu initiated by the court in 2008 on elephant deaths. The Bench directed the authority to deploy more staffs in the forest areas. It also  directed the state, NWB and service providers to sit together to clear the confusions about the height of the high tension wire and submit a report and adjourned the case for further hearing.
