A farmer was trampled to death by an elephant in Balod district when he had
gone to his field on Monday evening.

The 48-year-old Ramji Gond owned a field and had gone to check upon the
sugarcane crop in Mulle village.

He was unaware about the presence of two tuskers feeding on his crops. As
it was dark, Gond did not notice one of the tuskers charging towards him,
the elephant rolled him in the trunk and trampled him to death.

The locals informed the police and forest department when they saw the
mutilated body of the farmer. Villagers were too terrified to go near the
body as it was in bad shape. It appeared that the tusker had dragged the
man here and there till he died.

Forest department officials said that a relief amount of Rs 25,000 was paid
to the kin of deceased and the remaining Rs 5.75 lakh will be provided once
the formalities are done.
