Bhubaneswar: Villagers of Surala, Krushnanagar and nearby villages under Chikiti block in Ganjam district are in a state of fear as a herd of elephants are moving in the region after eating and destroying paddy on acres of land last night.

According to reports, the jumbo herd has been moving and wrecking havoc in human habitation areas for nearly a month now. But forest officials have failed in driving away the pachyderms to deep jungle.

Villagers have demanded that the pachyderms be driven away soon and they be paid compensation for paddy lost due to elephants.
