Raipur: A 35-year-old woman was trampled to death on Saturday by a wild elephant in Chhattisgarh's Mahasamund district, police said.

The incident occurred on Saturday morning in forests under Sirpur police station area when the victim, Sunita Yadav, had gone to gather wood, a local police official told PTI.

Yadav, a native of nearby Riwadih village which falls in neighbouring Balodabazar district, along with other women had came to Sirpur forest, located around 80 km away from the capital, to pick wood, he said.
