A person was killed on the spot and two others sustained critical injuries when an elephant attacked them while they were sleeping in a kendu leaf godown at Gadumunda village under the Rairakhol Wildlife Division in Sambalpur district on Saturday night.

The deceased Bimbadhar Mahakud was a labourer. The other injured Binayak Dehury and Pabitra Dehury were initially admitted to the Rairakhol hospital before being shifted to the VIMSAR in Burla after their health conditions worsened. Both legs of Binayak and Pabitra have been fractured.

Reports said six persons were sleeping in the godown after having dinner when the elephant barged into the house and attacked them. The three other labourers, managed to escape. 

Later, tension ran high in the village as locals protested when Forest Department officials reached the spot late after getting information. However, the officials pacified the mob and sent the deceased’s body for postmortem.
