Who is the man with the hatchet?

That is Ballu Khan, part of the family who claims ownership of Suman. He is well known for extreme cruelty in getting elephants to comply with his wishes. The images below show his methods, which include hitting elephants with a hatchet! The cruelty inflicted on this elephant is well documented in Brigitte Kornetzky's documentary "Where the Elephant Sleeps." The elephant shown below being hit with a hatchet later had to be euthanised. Where the Elephant Sleeps reveals the hidden truth about the abuse of elephants in Jaipur working in the tourism industry.
