Locals in Sirpur village in Mahasamund district of Chattisgarh have been panic-stricken as scores of wild elephants have strayed into the human settlement and destroyed their houses and food grains.
The officers feared that their shoes will get destroyed if they cross the nullah on their own.
Villagers, already living under the terror of wild elephants, had to obey their call and made these officials cross the nullah.
However, the visit of these officials has yielded no fruit, as locals are still living the under the fear of wild elephants. And now they have to carry the extra burden of the government.
