BERHAMPUR: A woman was trampled to death in a Forest Department-run nursery at Budurungu under Buguda forest range on Sunday night. The deceased has been identified as Sashi Samal (50).

Sashi along with four other daily wagers was working in the nursery when a tusker entered the area. While others managed to flee, Sashi fell down. The tusker lifted her and then threw her on the ground before trampling her, an eyewitness said. Even as she was rushed to the Jaganathprasad hospital and then to MKCG Medical, she was declared dead.

 In the last few years, elephants have played havoc in Ganjam district with the animals claiming 16 lives. The man-animal conflict in the district has also resulted in deaths of 17 jumbos in the last three years.

UTP DIES: A 42-year-old under-trial prisoner of Circle jail, M Shanti, died on Sunday evening. She belonged to Chennai and was arrested by Excise sleuths in May last while transporting ganja from Gajapati to Chennai.

 Last week, she was admitted to MKCG Medical after she found HIV positive and suffering from malaria.
