Raipur, Dec 15 (IANS) Two people were killed and about 70 others were evacuated from two villages in Koria district of Chhattisgarh after a herd of wild elephants ran amok, wildlife officials said Monday.


'The wild tuskers trampled to death 50-year-old Dhayan Sai in Sundarpur village and 60-year-old Baratu Pando in Sitapur village Sunday night,' a forest department official said.



About 70 residents of these two villages, which are surrounded by a thick jungle, had been shifted to safer areas fearing more attacks by elephants.
