A 20-year-old man was trampled to death by a wild elephant near Kathalia village in Dumka district on Friday, a forest official said. Robin Tudu went to a hilly area in search of his cow when the incident happened, Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) Saurabh Chandra said.
Agitated villagers blocked the Dumka-Seuri road demanding compensation to the family of the deceased. The DFO said compensation could be given only after post-mortem examination of the body.
He asked the villagers not to venture into the hilly area as the lone elephant is still there.
