Chinna Thambi menace: Villagers block highway

TIRUPUR: Around 150 villagers from Krishnapuram in Tirupur district of Tamil Nadu staged a road blockade protest at the Udumalpet-Palani freeway for more than an hour on Thursday demanding that forest officers ward off crop-raiding elephant Chinna Thambi that has been roaming within the space for the final 3 days.

The villagers referred to as off their protest after revenue and police officers pacified them announcing that the government was once taking suitable steps to “remove” the wild elephant from their space.

On Thursday, Chinna Thambi was once roaming in a sugarcane box, 3km away from Amaravathi Cooperative Sugar Mills' seed multiplication centre.
