Mission Arkompan

  • The forest department has initiated ‘Mission Arikomban’, an operation to capture the rogue tusker.
  • A wild elephant by the name of Arikomban has been causing chaos in the higher ranges of Idukki district in Kerala.
  • Over the past few years, Arikomban has trampled at least 10 people to death and destroyed around 60 houses and shops.
  • The forest department has come up with a plan to capture Arikomban and train it to be a ‘kumki’, a captive elephant used for operations against rogue elephants.
  • The plan is to capture it with tranquilizer shots and later shift it to an elephant training center.
