A 35-year-old woman was trampled to death by wild elephants in Kurkuris pahari forest in Giridih district, officials said on Wednesday.

On Wednesday morning, wild elephants attacked the woman, identified as Lalita Devi, under Muffasil police station, located about 20 km from the Giridih town, when she had gone there to collect Mahua flowers, a forest official said.

When the victim, a native of Bagato village, did not return home, the villagers launched a search in the forest.

They later found that she was trampled to death by elephants, the official said.

After being alerted, forest personnel rushed to the spot and sent the body for post-mortem, he said.

The kin of the deceased have been provided an instant relief of Rs 25,000, while the remaining compensation will be given on completion of the required formalities, the official said.

"With this incident, dozen people have been killed in elephant attacks in Giridih in the last one year," he said.
