The acts of vandalism, according to forest officials, took place on Friday.

The mob perpetrated extensive damage to the solar-powered barrier that was put in place by state forest department to curb the intrusion of wild animals into places of human habitations.

A local woman, Mamata Bera (38), had made unauthorized entry to the prohibited National park area to collect forest produce. She came in contact with the live solar fencing while sneaking through the barrier and sustained minor injury due to pulsating effect of the solar power, forest officials said.
