    Man-Elephant Conflict: One person allegedly killed in Elephant Attack in Udalguri

    The deceased has been identified as a tea garden worker

    Guwahati/Udalguri: With uprising floods and COVID-19 cases on the rise, one person in the Nonaipara area of Udalguri was allegedly killed during an elephant attack on Saturday night.

    The deceased has been identified as Amar Suna, 38, a tea garden worker. He was allegedly crushed by a massive herd of wild elephants in front of his house while he was trying to chase the “invading” elephants from damaging the property of the tea garden as well as houses of the other workers.

    The workers on Sunday have approached the forest department to ask for help and initiatives to chase away the elephants with allegedly come to the human habitats frequently.

    It may be mentioned that every year during the flood season, herds of wild jumbos come in the human villages in search of food as the forest areas witness a shortage of food. The elephants also come to the villages as they have the idea that humans have huge farm areas that they can eat in times of shortage.

    This visit by the elephants often results in a man-elephant conflict and every year, the state loses several human as well as elephant lives due to this conflict.
