The elephant had reportedly wandered out of the Sonai Rupai Wildlife Sanctuary in search of food. The incident occurred in Dhiraimajuli village in the Dhekiajuli part of Sonitpur district.

Tanti had come up against a herd of elephants on Friday night, which led to his death. The two forest rangers were also injured in the attack and were admitted to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.
