GUWAHATI, May 21 - The wild elephant that had strayed out of the Amchang Wildlife Sanctuary and strolled through the GS Road here on May 1 last, revisited the city today. It was spotted in the Panjabari-Botahguli area early this morning as it moved on the main road. However, by afternoon, it was on a hill at Botahguli.
�The Forest department is getting two kunkis from Sonapur to drive away the jumbo deep inside the forest. This will be done tomorrow morning,� an official said.
With the possibility of rains at night, the elephant is unlikely to venture into the city till morning hours. Two teams of Forest officials are keeping a watch over the pachyderm. It has not harmed anyone.
The elephant has been nicknamed �Maharaj� by the residents of Panjabari, an area which it frequently visits.
On May 1 last, the jumbo, around 11-12 years of age, had to be tranquilised after it detoured lanes and bylanes, besides the GS Road. Later, it was taken in a truck and released inside the Amchang forest.
