JHANSI: An elephant suddenly went berserk and crushed its mahout to death in Karguaji locality here on Sunday morning.
Four elephants had come from Madhoa in Hamirpur on Saturday to take part in an ongoing religious event of Jains.
On Sunday morning, one elephant lost its cool during feeding and attacked mahout Majid (55), killing him on the spot.
The elephant did not calm down and started throwing things near it. The only relief was that it was tied with a tree. A huge crowd gathered there and the situation became more vulnerable.
The police reached the spot. The other mahouts somehow brought the elephant in control.
