DIPHU, Dec 4 - Four persons were trampled to death by a wild elephant at three nearby villages in West Karbi Anglong district on Tuesday, official sources said.
The elephant attacked three women and a boy when they were working in sugarcane and paddy fields in their villages in the Kheroni area. The animal killed a woman and a 12-year-old boy at Bagidubi, and two other women at Lomba Pathar and Jiribasa villages.
The elephant, suspected to have been separated from its herd, came out of Kheroni forest a few days ago wreaking havoc in the area, destroying standing crops, sources said. � PTI
