Elephants breaking our houses and Police arresting people on night vigil...

DS Maliya is calling from Dharmajaigarh Chhattisgarh to say that elephant has again broken a house last night in ward no 8. To protect their houses some people were sitting outside and playing a game of card so that if elephant herd comes their side then they can make some noise. Instead of doing anything to stop elephants police have arrested these people on charge of betting. You are requested to call District Forest Officer@7587012707 to help. Maliya@9406080216
