Four persons were trampled to death by a wild elephant at three nearby villages in West Anglong district on Tuesday, official sources said.

The elephant attacked the four persons - three women and a boy - when they were working in their sugarcane and paddy fields in villages under Kheroni area.

The animal killed a woman and a 12-year-old boy at Bagidubi village, and two other women at Lomba Pathar and Jiribasa villages.

The elephant, suspected to have been separated from its herd, came out of the a few days ago and wrecked havoc in the area destroying standing crops, the sources said.
