Mumbai/IBNS: India's business tycoon and Chairman Emeritus of the Tata Group Ratan Tata on Wednesday expressed his shock and grief over the death of the pregnant elephant in Kerala who was fed firecracker-laden pineapple by some local people.

Sharing his thoughts on Twitter, he wrote: "I am grieved and shocked to know that a group of people caused the death of an innocent, passive, pregnant elephant by feeding the elephant with a pineapple filled with crackers."

He demanded strict punishment for the perpetrators calling the act no different from murders against humans.

Urging for justice, he wrote: "Such criminal acts against innocent animals are no different than acts of mediated murder against other humans."

"Justice needs to prevail," he added.

In a brutal instance of animal abuse, a pregnant elephant in Kerala died after she ate a pineapple full of firecrackers offered to her by some locals.

Disturbing visuals showed the elephant dying slowly while standing in water in northern Kerala's Malappuram district.

The wild elephant had left the forest and traversed into a nearby village in search of food.

As she walked down the streets, she was offered the pineapple full of crackers by locals.

The cracker reportedly exploded inside her mouth causing grave injury inside and to the tongue.

Following this, the elephant reportedly walked around the town in pain and hunger. However, she was unable to eat anything.

The elephant eventually walked up to the Velliyar River and stood there. It was then photos were taken of her gradual death there.

The incident sparked protests from several people belonging to different walks of lives, who demanded action against those responsible.
