Watch: Foreign tourist swung into air by elephant at Amer Fort

Jaipur: In a horrific incident, a Russian tourist was flung into air by an elephant and slammed to the ground at Amer Fort in Jaipur. She has sustained injuries.

The incident took place on February 13. Later, a video has surfaced via CCTV footage.

In the CCTV footage, the elephant was seen grabbing the woman with its truck and then swinging her into the air and then slammed her to the ground. The mahout of the elephant also lost balance and was thrown to the ground.

After the incident, the Russian tourist was immediately rushed to Sawai Man Singh hospital by the officials of the fort for medical aid.

Later, the Amer Fort administration banned the services of the female elephant Gouri and her mahout.

Animal rights organisation PETA shared the video of the incident on microblogging site X (formerly known as Twitter) and tagged Rajasthan Chief Minister Bhajanlal Sharma, Deputy Chief Minister Diya Kumari and the state’s Forest Department, requesting them to relocate the elephant to a wildlife sanctuary.

Worthnoting, this is not the first time that Gouri has attacked people. The elephant also attacked a local shopkeeper, causing grievous injuries in 2023.
