Wild tusker kill woman at Dhupdhara


A woman was trampled to death by a wild tusker at a village near Dhupdhara in Goalpara district in the early morning of Wednesday. After damaging the house the elephant attacked Lalita Rabha (28) when she was sleeping at her house along with other family members. While others managed to run away, Lalita Rabha failed to move fast and fell victim to the tusker's wrath, villagers said. The incident occured at Jyotigaon under Rangjuli Forest Range and about 7 km from Dhupdhara.


It may be noted here that Goalpara district’s southern region has witnessed repeated attacks by wild elephants for about a decade now. Illegal destruction of forests and human encroachment in the forests is the main reason for more and more human-elephant conflicts.
