The elephant's mahout, P.V. Anil from Pathanamthitta, was killed when he attempted to control the tusker. The elephant had been brought for the festival of Paloor Alanchery Bhagavati Temple.

The elephant ran along the road for about three kms and entered the Government Higher Secondary School compound, panicking the children who were taking exams.
