Two women and three cows were trampled to death by a wild elephant near Aniyala on the Anekal border. The incident occurred when the villagers attempted to drive away the wild elephant that came to a farm. The elephant suddenly attacked those who were working in the farm and they died on the spot.

Of the two deceased women, one was identified as Ashwathamma. Following deaths of the two women, locals staged a protest by, blocking the roads with tree trunks.

Villagers expressed their outrage, accusing the forest department of failing to take appropriate action to stop the conflict between humans and elephants. People are dying due to repeated attacks by elephants, but the forest department is not taking any action, they charged.
