Goalpara (Assam), August 16: At least three people including a child were killed in a wild elephant attack in Assam's Goalpara district along the Assam-Meghalaya border. The incident took place at Kurang village near Lakhipur along the Assam-Meghalaya border in the wee hours of Monday. According to the forest official, a herd of wild elephants were coming to the area from the nearby hills area of Meghalaya for searching food and attacked the people.
