In the past ten years, at least 924 individuals in Assam were killed in man-elephant conflicts, Environment and Forest Minister Parimal Suklabaidya told the Assembly on Wednesday.

Also, 772 persons were injured during this time period, according to the ministry.

Goalpara, Sonitpur, Biswanath, Nagaon, Hojai, Udalguri, Baksa, Majuli, Golaghat, Jorhat, Lakhimpur, Chirang, Tinsukia, Kamrup, Darrang, and Sivasagar were the most affected districts.

Meanwhile, Congress MLA Bhaskar Jyoti Baruah stated that in addition to humans, elephants are also killed in the conflicts.

BJP legislator Rupjyoti Kurmi also informed the House that Assam possessed around 5,600 elephants. Elephants from adjacent hill states go to Assam’s plains in quest of food, according to Kurmi. In this context, the Assam government should seek help from the central government.
