Wild elephants damage crops in Kurigram

A herd of Indian elephants is damaging ripe paddy and other crops in bordering Roausing concern among the farmers.

The farmers failed to drive away the wild animals by beating drums and lighting up torches.

A number of herds of Indian wild elephants almost every night enter the  upazila through Kalairchar border from the Garo hill.

Local people said the wild elephants often destroy their houses if they do not find out food.

Former lawmaker M Ruhul Amin said both governments had been requested to take steps to stop the elephants' entry in Bangladesh.

Upazila griculture officer M Shahriar Hossain said works are going on to assess the extent of crop damage.

The farmers have been advised to harvest their ripe crops.
