Mahouts on strike in Dubare Elephant camp

Mahouts at the Dubare Elephant Camp in Kushalnagar went on strike on Friday against the government  to confirm their services.  Twenty mahouts and assistants protested by sending 16 camp elephants into the forest and denying to work. The Mahouts alleged that of the 26 mahouts working with the Forest Department in the camp, the services of 10 were yet to be regularized but the Government had not confirmed the services of 10 mahouts.

Dubare  was almost empty  as visitors could not take the boat ride to cross the river as the boat were also halted due to the strike.
