A wild elephant entered Dudhiya Gram in Mantadari Gram Panchayat under Rajganj block on Wednesday night creating havoc among the residents. The animal damaged three houses and in the ensuing rampage injured a cow as well.
Before turning back to the forest, the elephant entered the paddy fields and ate almost all the crop, said a local. Upon receiving news of the rampage, village sarpanch Haripada Roy and the BDMO visited the village to assuage the frightened residents. (EOIC)
