Mangalore: A herd of five elephants destroyed a banana and arecanut plantation at Mandekolu village in Sullia taluk.

More than 100 arecanut palms and banana plantains near Mandekolu Mahavishnu temple owned by Rama Kadambalithaya were destroyed by the herd.

It is said that the herd later went towards Akkappady river in Parappay in Kerala.
