Sometimes I wonder if we should really wait for karma to take action. The only deserving punishment for this evil act is to burst the same crackers in their ass.— Amala Paul ⭐️ (@Amala_ams) June 3, 2020

Now, Actor Prithviraj who belongs to Kerala, uploaded a post confirming that the Fire crackers stuffed Pineapple was not intentionally fed by someone. He said that the elephant accidentally ate the explosive snare that was kept to ward off wild boars to protect the crops. He pointed out that the act is illegal but is widely being practiced. “There is absolutely no communal connection to the incident. Both forest and police officers registered case andthe investigations are on.” his post read which also notified that the death happened on 27th of May, not yesterday.
Check out his post below :
KK Sunil Kumar, while talking to media , has said that they (authorities) are assuming that the elephant fell prey to the explosive snare used to fend off wild boars. This statement from the officer makes us realize that no person is directly involved in this act. It is widely believed that a group of people fed the cracker filled pineapple to the 15 year old elephant to have fun. However, using snares to trap, wound or kill animal is a cruel practice, and it is punishable under the Wildlife Protection Act if people even try to do it.

The officer further stated that there is no evidence surfaced to conclude that the elephant was intentionally fed such an explosive. “In fact, we are also investigating if it bit a fruit laden with explosives or directly bit these snares” he added.
