Dehra Dun: A tusker, seriously injured in a fight with another male elephant in the jungles of Rajaji Park on January six, died after falling from a hilltop, officials said on Sunday.

The elephant, fondly called Tipu by forest officials, was undergoing treatment and was showing signs of improvement, they said.

However, Tipu, aged 45 years, fell from a hilltop in Motichur range while walking last night and died instantly.

Male elephants usually fight with each other especially during the winter considered as mating season for pachyderms.
