Mysore: Two wild elephants stormed into Mysore on Wednesday, trampling one person to death and causing panic in this cultural city. "The wild elephants entered the city around 6 a.m. from a nearby forest, wreaked havoc in a suburb trampling one person to death and caused panic in the area," state higher education minster S.A. Ramdas told reporters in Mysore, about 140 km from Bangalore.
After three hours of high voltage drama and mayhem, the twin jumbos were tranquilised by forest guards and chained to trees. The victim has been identified as Renuka Prasad, a 55-year-old resident of Bamboo Bazar in the old city.
