The Attorney General has filed indictments before the trial-at-bar in the Colombo High Court over the elephant trafficking case in which S.N. Roshan alias Ali Roshan and seven others were named as accused over the alleged illegal possession of five elephants during the 2012-2015 period without a valid license.
