Coimbatore: Four people, including a minor girl, were trampled to death and two others injured by an elephant at Vellalore area on the outskirts of the city Friday.

The 12-year-old girl was sleeping in the veranda of her house when the elephant, which strayed into human habitations some days ago from the nearby Madukkarai forests, trampled her to death around 3.30 am, the police said.

The pachyderm then moved away from the area and attacked and grievously injured three more people, including two women.

They were rushed to the government hospital here, but did not respond to treatment and passed away, the police said.

The injured were undergoing treatment. Forest department officials said they were trying to drive away the pachyderm into the forest by bringing in 'kumkis' (tamed elephants). The department urged people to exercise caution while stepping out of their houses.
