     Raigarh, September 07, 2015: A rogue elephant today trampled a Chinese engineer in Raigarh district of Chhattisgarh, when the foreigner was on a forestry area.

     “A wild elephant today trampled a Chinese engineer in Kathghora forest area,” Raigarh District Superintendent of Police Dr Sanjeev Shukla told ChhattisgarhTopNews.Com.

     “The Chinese national is identified as Jong Kitau, who was giving service for a power plant TRN Engineers Limited at Raigarh district,” Shukla said.

     The engineer was an employee of a Chinese company CWPC, which is hired for construction of the power plant in Raigarh district, the police officer said.

     The incident took place, when two Chinese nationals were on a morning walk in Katangidih forest area when they were face to face with a rogue elephant, the officer said.

      Katangidih is in Gharghoda police station area of Raigarh district, about 300 Kilometre from the Chhattisgarh capital Raipur.
