“We want to know the reason why the elephant has died,” said environmentalist Mohammad Saleem. “But until and unless the post-mortem is done, we can’t know the reason, and until and unless the elephant calf moves, the post-mortem cannot be done,”

Rescue workers were waiting for the calf to leave the body before it starts to decay.
