One of the foresters, who was absconding after the STF recovered the
skeleton of an elephant in Odisha’s Cuttack district, was arrested on
Monday.

The STF had found the skeleton of the elephant from Gopapur forest section
under Badamba range in June. Police arrested several persons in this
connection. But foresters Pradip Parida and Manoj Das who were also wanted
for their alleged involvement in the killing of the elephant were
absconding.

Later, Pradip was granted anticipatory bail in two separate cases from the
court. He had come to join duty in Khuntuni forest range on Monday.

On coming to know about it, Khntuni DFO informed the police who went to the
office and detained Pradip in the police station. The forester was
forwarded to the court on Tuesday.

The other forester, Manoj, is still absconding while police have launched a
manhunt to trace him.
