Krishnagiri: A herd of 15 elephants damaged agricultural crops in a village near Hosur in the wee hours on Friday, police said.

The elephants strayed into Lakkasandaram village from the Marakatta reserved forest area and started damaging standing crops in agricultural fields owned by farmers.

The villagers tried to chase the elephants away by beating drums and bursting crackers. But instead of going back to the forest, the frightened animals started running helter-skelter and damaged banana crops.

Forest officials have rushed to the spot.
