The attack of the elephant leaves two dead in the Angul forest

Angul: Two people were killed in an attack by an elephant in a forest near the village of Suleipal, below the wooded area of Khanna in the Angul district.
The deceased were identified as Debra Samal and Sudhakar Mohanty.
According to sources, the duo went to nearby farmland last night to expand compost when they came across the pahiderm. Jumbo then attacked them on the spot and critically injured him.
Since the duo did not return home, a family member tried to find them and found Sudhakara’s body in the forest.
Debra, who sustained serious injuries in the attack, was rescued and transferred to the Talcher Hospital, but doctors declared him dead by the arrival.
