Bijlee, the 58-year-old ailing elephant rescued by individuals and NGOs sometime back, died in Mumbai today. 

"Bijlee's end came at 5.58 am today. The animal was critical for the last two days and did not respond to treatment yesterday. Our volunteers were maintaining a 24-hour vigil on it," Pawan Sharma, the representative of NGO RAWW (Resqink Association for Wildlife Welfare), said.
