Reign of terror in Majuli

A huge herd of wild elephants unleashed no less reign of terror in Majuli destroying crops and damaging property on Wednesday night.

At least 200 elephants came down to the river island in the evening and started destroying crops and vegetables in Nayabazar along with 20 other adjacent villages while some others damaged houses and properties forcing the villagers to flee.

Forest officials found it quite difficult to control the herd of wild elephants. They resorted to blank firing and burst of fire crackers. But of no avail.

Only in the wee hours, the entire herd of elephants vanished. The panic stricken villagers apprehend that the elephants might visit further again.
