Dehradun: An elderly man was trampled to death by an elephant in Shaympur forest range near the famous Rajaji National Park in Haridwar district.
Four residents of Rasoolpur Gote village ventured out of their houses yesterday in search of their buffaloes, forest department sources said today.
As they entered the Shyampur forest range close to Rajaji Park, they came face to face with a pachyderm.
While three of them ran to safety, 56-year-old Gopal Dutt Kandpal was lifted by the elephant on its trunk and thrown to the ground before being trampled to death, forest department sources said.
Kandpal died on the spot.
