Balasore: In a tragic incident on Friday night, a tusker trampled a youth to death after invading into the village.

The deceased has been identified as Jatia, eldest son of Ratnakar Nayak of Kutturipala village under Khaira police limits in Balasore on Friday night.

According to the villagers, Jatia was having dinner at home when he got alarmed at the invasion of the jumbo into the village. He ventured out of his home and tried to flee from the spot to save his life when he was unfortunately dragged by the elephant and was crushed to death.

Villagers complained that the tusker has been spreading panic among the locals for the last few days but the Forest officials have allegedly not taken any steps to drive it away.
