Wild elephant goes on a rampage at Goalpara

The herd, comprising about 200 jumbos and calves, emerged from the neighbouring forest in search of food last night.

The elephants have been posing a threat to houses in remote areas. With panic prevailing in the area as the elephants were still roaming about freely, the local people have urged the forest department to provide them security from the animals.
