Elephants kill roughly 60 people every year in India's forested eastern state of Jharkhand More
Khan said he shot the elephant at point-blank range, but before the animal fell it tried to swing its trunk at the hunting party, forcing him to fire a second time.
According to the Newspaper, The hunt was carried out in Sahibganj district of Jharkhand.Claiming that it was a unsafe operation, Mr. Khan recalled that the pachyderm tried to swing its trunk at the hunting party after he shot the elephant at point-blank range.
A rogue elephant, believed to be lost, has killed at least 15 people in some villages of Bihar and Jharkhand since April 2017, AFP reported on Wednesday.
Wildlife rangers and hunters assembled in Jharkhand after another victim was trampled to death on Tuesday evening, Jharkhand's chief forest and wildlife conservator LR Singh told AFP.
An elephant blamed for killing more than a dozen people in the eastern Indian states of Jharkhand and Bihar was shot dead on Friday, after an elaborate hunt that involved dozens of forest officials and a sharpshooter. "Something must be done", Mr Singh said, referring to one of the poorest tribal communities in the region. Hyderabad's celebrated hunter Nawab Shafath Ali Khan felled the tusker with one shot from his rifle.
"It was quite a hard operation because of the thick bushes and since the animal had turned rogue it charged at us before I pulled the trigger", Khan said. "I prefer tranquilizing animals. But if it doesn't happen, killing is the last resort", he said.
The elephant's death comes a day before World Elephant Day, which falls every year on August 12.
Violent encounters between elephants and humans have been on the rise, as human activities and expansion of settlements leave little room for wild elephants to roam.
