Press Trust of India  |  Mysore 

The elephant Kavita died yesterday at the K Gudi Camp in Biligiri Ranganatittu Wildlife Sanctuary, Principal Chief Conservator of Forests and Chief Wild Life Warden Dipal Sarmah told PTI.

The elephant was not keeping well and was undergoing treatment for the past few months, he added.

As the pachyderm was indisposed, she was left out from this year's celebrations, Sarmah said, adding, it was captured in Kakanakote forest in 1977.
