Tuskers Wreak Havoc In Keonjhar, Destroy Houses

Banspal: A herd of rampaging tuskers entered Adal Munda Sahi under the Banspal block of Keonjhar district late last night and went on a rampage destroying houses and standing crops.

Reportedly, the herd comprising around 10 jumbos strayed into the human settlement and destroyed the many houses and standing crops in the locality. Later, locals spotted the tuskers and immediately alerted the forest personal about the matter.

On receiving information, the forest personal reached the spot and launched an operation to drive away the wild animals.

While an atmosphere of panic has set in the nearby villages, locals are spending sleepless nights to keep themselves and their farmlands safe from the marauding elephants.

Meanwhile, Forest guards, taking all measures, are keeping a close watch on the movement of the elephants.
