PARSA, Jan 31: Thag Prasad Yadav, a local resident of Sibvarsa VDC of Parsa district was killed in a wild elephant attack last night.
The 60 year old Yadav was attacked by the aimlessly wandering mammal while he was offering water at Dhdheshwor Mahadev Temple nearby, according to police. “Yadav had been there in a group. However, other managed to flee the scene,” he added.
The incident location is based near Charbhayau Range Post.
Right after being informed about the incident, a joint team from Police Post, Rangapur, Area Police Office, Paterwa Sugauli and Parsa Wildlife Reserve reached the site and rescued the group of people trapped due to the incident to a safer place.
The body of Yadav has been kept at Birgunj-based Narayani Sub Regional Hospital for a post-mortem.
More than 10 people are killed every year in attacks by wild elephants straying from the forests into surrounding human settlements in Parsa district, said local people.
