Honorary wildlife warden of Mumbai, Sunish Subramanian Kunju has alleged that he has received a threat call from someone who claims to be a "well-wisher" of the man whose elephant died last week. A complaint has been registered at the Bhandup police station.

"On January 25, a 30-year-old elephant named Laxmi died in Dahisar. She was owned by Sabhashankar B Pande. The person who called me claims to be Pande's well-wisher," Kunju alleged, adding that he received calls from two different numbers on January 29.
