Angul: A tusker has strayed into the village of Chhendipada from the forest area which has created panic and fear among the villagers in the area. Last Friday, it had strayed into the human habitat from Kankurupal jungle in search of food.
As it was feeding on threshed paddy, some villagers noticed and tried to scare it off by shouting and bursting crackers. Forest officials and the elephant squad also reached the place.
