The elephant shootout incident had happened on Saturday, March 7, 2020. Rahim, a temporary staffer, who shot at the charging elephant has been sacked. Umesh, a permanent employee of the Karnataka Forest Department, is also under investigation.— Randeep Hooda (@RandeepHooda) March 11, 2020

"We have removed Rahim, a temporary staff. We will take action against Umesh, a regular employee of the department, after an internal enquiry," said Bandipur field director T Balchandra.
The method adopted reeks of immaturity. One is they dont need to shoot towards the direction of the elephant.Secondly, the thrill they derive of the act is clearly evident.If the act was correct in the eyes of the forest,they wouldnt have made this comment to a bangalore scribe— Randeep Hooda (@RandeepHooda) March 11, 2020
Very grateful & impressed by the Field Director of Bandipur Tiger Reserve Mr T Balachandran IFS for prompt & decisive action against the culprits..this sends out a clear message that this insensitive behaviour towards wildlife will not be tolerated @aranya_kfd @moefcc @CentralIfs https://t.co/XM8vEpUrS4— Randeep Hooda (@RandeepHooda) March 12, 2020
