Terror from wild elephants in Jhapa district has not ended yet as locals fear that the herd of wild elephants seen in Duhagadhi, Garamani, Dhaijan and Chandragadhi of Jhapa district for last few days could have still living in nearby forests of Nichajhoda, RSS reports.
Earlier on Tuesday, a team of Armed Forest Security personnel was deployed to chase away the wild tuskers from the area but no elephant was traced.
