A man was slammed to death by an annoyed elephant Saturday night.

According to Sreemangal Forest Officer Monayem, the elephant was tied to a stake when the mahout went to get a cup of tea. A group of young men came out to pester the elephant around 11pm. The elephant was able to grab one of them with its trunk, and slammed him to death.

The deceased has been identified as Manilal Debnath, a 20-year-old.

Sreemangal police station Officer-in-Charge, Nazrul Islam, said an autopsy will be conducted and that the elephant is in police custody, but the mahout remains on the run.
