According to the forest officials, Ramasamy owned a land at Attamokkai area near Pudu Vadavalli located within STR and had raised some crops.

In wee hours of Friday, an elephant entered the land and started consuming the crops. The farmer noticed it and tried to scare the elephant but it retaliated and trampled Ramasamy to death on the spot.

The relatives and neighbours of Ramasamy noticed him dead and informed the Sathyamangalam Police and also Forest personnel. The officials visited the spot and declared that the death was due to an attack by the elephant.

Ramasamy’s body was shifted to Sathyamangalam Government Hospital.
