The convoy stayed for half an hour, then moved towards the car
In fact, on Wednesday, the convoy of former Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat was coming from Pauri to Kotdwar via Satpuli. Between five and six o’clock in the evening, suddenly an elephant came out of the forest and came on the road near the broken Gadera between Kotdwar-Dugadda. Due to this, the convoy of the former Chief Minister stayed for about half an hour. For some time the former CM sat in his vehicle but after sometime the elephant started coming towards his vehicle.
One person in the convoy injured
Seeing the elephant approaching the vehicle, former CM Trivendra Singh Rawat and his companions left the vehicle and left for the hill. During this, a large number of vehicles gathered. Prithviraj Chauhan, his colleague in the former CM’s convoy, got out of the vehicle and got injured while climbing the hill. At the same time, there was a stir among the officials of the Forest Department due to the fear of the elephant being an attacker. After this, the forest personnel hurriedly drove the elephant into the forest, leaving air fire and firecrackers. Forest workers heaved a sigh of relief after the former CM passed through the highway.
