The aggressive jumbo was recently relocated from Karnataka to the Bengur Forest Range but attacked a nearby village in Kattikkulam, Kerala, on February 10.
In a horrifying clip, the people are seen seeking refuge as the elephant caught up with them.
Tragically, resident Ajeesh, 46, stumbled as he was trying to escape and he was trampled to death by the four-tonne bull.
Shockedwere later seen carrying Ajeesh off the property.
The victim was rushed to Mananthavady Medical College to be treated but died from his injuries.
After the local’s death, Forests and Wildlife Minister AK Saseendran said they would meet to address the issue and warned locals not to attack elephants in retaliation.
The forestry worker appealed for cooperation from the community amid protests to provide compensation for the victim’s family.
Ajeesh was said to be a tractor driver and the sole breadwinner for his household.
The local government promised to provide a job for his wife and give them £9,529 compensation.
During a meeting with Ajeesh’s father, Joseph, AK Saseendran said: “The safety of both the residents and the wildlife must be prioritised, and a comprehensive plan of action should be devised to prevent such incidents from occurring in the.”
Ajeesh was the fifth person injured in human-animal-related conflicts in five weeks in Kerala.
As elephants raid crops for food, they come into contact and conflict with humans, trying to protect fields and homes.
In response, the Indian government has tried measures like compensation schemes for farmers, electric and solar fence installations, and creating alternative water sources away from villages.
This comes after a rampaging elephant chased tourists who tried to take selfies with it and nearly trampled one to death.
The incident happened along a national highway in India when two men left their car to snap selfies with the jumbo behind them.
But as they approached, the elephant suddenly went berserk and rushed towards them.
One of the tourists tripped on the side of the road as the elephant suddenly stopped and turned towards him as he lay on the ground.
To the man’s luck, the huge creature then turned around before heading back to the wild.
Another tourist was attacked in India after she teased an elephant with a banana.
The shocking footage shows the young lady trying to feed the four ton beast before it aggressively storms into her – tusks and all.
