A 20-year-old man was trampled to death by a wild elephant in Jharkhand's Dumka district on Friday, a forest official said.
The man had gone to a hilly area in search of his cow when the incident happened, Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) Saurabh Chandra said.
Agitated villagers blocked the Dumka-Seuri road demanding compensation for the family of the man.
The DFO said compensation could be given only after post-mortem of the body. The villagers have been warned to not venture into the hilly area.
