Maharaja Pratap Chandra of Mayurbhanj, born 18th February 1901, dead 1968, (Maharaja 1928-1968) caught 18 elephants at Champagarh. Out of 18 elephants caught, one old cow elephant was left free. One large tusker and one makhna (tusk less male) died. Out of the remaining 15 elephants, five were tuskers, one a Ganesh (single tusked) and nine cow elephants (Das, 1932). The speciality of this kheda operation of 1932 was that no tamed elephants were used to tie the elephants like earlier khedas.
