Local people and BGB members saw it. After informing the forest department, after half an hour of effort, the elephant swam from Parabon of Naf river towards Lal Diya. Muhammad Ali, UP member of Ward No. 9 of Hnilar Union, said that the elephant came from Myanmar and swam from Nafna River. After entering Bangladesh for a while in Paraban, he again went towards Myanmar. He said that in the morning, some people suddenly saw a huge elephant swimming towards Teknaf through the Nafna River. When the word spread about the location of the elephant inside the parabon, eager crowds gathered to catch a glimpse. Seeing the crowd of people, the elephant started running around.
