Teenager killed taking selfies with elephant The incident took place at Pandubbi village in Araria district, an eastern Bihar district bordering Nepal. Reports said a large crowd of villagers had gathered at the village on Thursday after being informed that a wild elephant had sneaked into a maize field from Nepal.

While villagers armed with traditional weapons tried to put a security ring around the field from afar to stop the tusker moving forward, Mithun Paswan, 15, along with two friends went close to the tusker in a bid to take selfies with it.

Seeing the youth furiously clicking with their mobile cameras, the elephant chased them. While his friends fled, Paswan stayed for a while trying to get better snaps and got caught by the elephant who wrapped him in its trunk.

Witnesses said soon after catching the teenager, the tusker hit the boy hard on the ground several times, leaving him badly wounded. He was instantly rushed to a local primary health centre, but doctors declared him dead on arrival.

The local district administration has granted a compensation of Rs20,000 (Dh1,085) to the victim’s family and has also rushed a team of forest department officials to trap the tusker which still remains at large.
