TURA: Two women, Pongsai Rabha (65) and Hobisori Rabha (30), were trampled to death in Tikrikilla region of West Garo Hills when a herd of wild elephants rampaged through their home on Monday night, while a child sustained serious injuries and was rushed to the hospital for medical treatment.
The family was asleep in their home in Nayapara village of Pedaldoba when the wild herd entered the village in search of food and started destroying bamboo dwelling homes.
