Residents look at the dead elephant in Jamalpur, Bangladesh
New Delhi - Arab Today

An adult Indian elephant that became trapped in a swamp in Bangladesh after being caught in raging floodwaters died on Tuesday after weeks of struggling for survival, a conservation official said.
Tapan Kumar Dey, a former forest conservator who was overseeing the rescue operation, said the elephant died despite the “highest efforts” to save it.
“This is very sad. We tried our best to save it,” Dey said.
The cause of the death of the elephant named “Bangabahadur,” or Hero of Bengal, was not immediately clear.
The elephant, tired and weak from its struggle, had been tranquilized earlier in an attempt to steer it from the swamp and to bring it closer to a road so it could be transported to an elephant safari park.
The elephant appeared to be fine on Sunday, Dey said, but was likely to have become dehydrated after being stuck in the swamp for days.
Monsoon-triggered flooding had carried the male elephant from upstream India before he became trapped in a swamp in Bangladesh’s Jamalpur district three weeks ago.
Authorities had planned to rescue it and move it to the safari park near the capital Dhaka.
Earlier, Indian wildlife authorities had abandoned plans to take the elephant back because it was unlikely that it would have been welcomed back to his herd in the hilly forests of the remote northeastern state of Assam.
Heavy downpours have flooded vast areas of eastern India since monsoon rains began in June.
