A herd of about 70-80 elephants entered the Numaligarh Refinery Limited (NRL) premises on Tuesday evening through the partially demolished wall of the public sector oil company that 'falls within the proposed Deopahar Reserve Forest' in Assam's Golaghat district. A chaotic situation prevailed as people tried to chase away the herd while a few angry tuskers charged at the crowd. The incident comes a day after the Gauhati High Court imposed a stay order on the complete demolition of the NRL boundary wall and said that status quo be maintained.
