Ghess (Bargarh): Carcass of a female elephant was found from Jhajha hill bordering Chhattisgarh in the district on Thursday. Preliminary investigation revealed that the elephant might have died after being struck by lightning. On Monday, when the villagers residing in the foothills were going to the forest to collect minor forest produce, they smelt a stench emitting from the hill and informed the Forest officials. After searching the hill for two days, the Forest officials found the carcass on Thursday close to Chhattisgarh border. Sources said the elephant was aged about 50 years and could have died a fortnight back.
