Tamilnadu Farmers Association has filed a petition with the District Collector Archana Patnaik urging her to direct the Forest Department officials to take action to drive away a lone tusker which has been invading fields of maize, plantain and sugarcane for the last 15 days

The pachyderm had been creating ruckus in areas like Ettimadai, Kurumbampalayam S.Palanisamy, the Farmers Association Secretary said that the lone elephant has been damaging the crops planted in these areas.
