As a religious festival was in progress in a temple in the southern Indian state of Kerala on Wednesday (11 March), a caparisoned jumbo was in no mood to stay and ran away with people holding on its tail to stop the creature. Fortunately, there was no mishap, though there were four persons atop the jumbo.

The incident happened in Palluruthy, near Kochi in Kerala where the pachyderm was brought for a ritualistic procession in a temple. The elephant turned restive and ran away, but was later brought under control.
