In the first incident, Ramdhani (33), a native of Singhra village, was travelling on a bicycle carrying a sack of ‘mahua’ flowers when he was attacked by the pachyderm. Prima facie, the elephant was attracted towards Ramdhani by the strong smell of mahua flowers (used in making alcoholic drinks by locals), the officer said.

Thickly-forested northern Chhattisgarh, comprising Surguja, Surajpur, Korba, Raigarh, Jashpur, Balrampur and Korea districts, is notorious for conflicts between humans and elephants.
