Jashpur, Chhattisgarh:

A 44-year-old villager was trampled to death by a herd of wild elephants in Chhattisgarh’s Jashpur district on Tuesday, a forest official said.

With this, at least four people have died in separate incidents of elephant attacks in the state so far this month.

Shyam Kumar Rohidas was killed by three elephants when he was out on the outskirts of Babu Sajbahar village under Chhattisgarh’s Jashpur forest division, Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) Srikrishna Jadhav said.

The family of the man have been given an amount of Rs 25,000, while the further compensation will be given after the completion of necessary formalities, he said.

In a similar incident on Monday, a woman was killed by a herd of pachyderms near Bartoli village of Chhattisgarh’s Jashpur, located around 400 km from state capital Raipur, while two men died in separate elephant attacks in the neighbouring Raigarh district earlier this month.

Several incidents of human-elephant conflict have been reported in the past from the thick-forested northern Chhattisgarh, comprising Surguja, Surajpur, Korba, Raigarh, Jashpur, Balrampur and Koriya districts.

The region has witnessed several killings of villagers and widespread damage to houses and crops by rogue elephants.

As per government records, 204 people were killed in elephant attacks and 45 pachyderms died in the state between 2018 and 2020.
