Angul: In yet another incident of man-animal conflict, one person was trampled to death by a wild elephant near Nuakheta village under Bantala police limits in Angul district. The victim, identified as Ramesh Sahu, was missing since last evening.
According to sources, Ramesh had taken his goats for grazing in a nearby field last evening but did not return home.
However, some locals spotted Ramesh’s dead body in a nearby jungle today morning following which they immediately informed his family and Bantala Police.
Prima facie evidence suggests that the tusker dragged Ramesh with its trunk and crushed him to death, police said.
