Palakkad: Two wild elephants that strayed  from Walayar forest damaged the roof of an anganwadi at Kongottupadam,  Kanjikode,  here on Thursday. The pachyderms also damaged the lights outside the houses along with the plantain and paddy cultivation in the region. The elephants reached the area at 10.30 p.m. and first pulled down the tiled roof of the anganwadi and stamped the roof to pieces.

The local people tried to scare away the animals by blasting crackers and beating drums for nearly one hour after which the elephants returned to the forest.   Twelve children in the region are attending the  anganwadi situated in Kasaba police station limit. Anganwadi authorities  said that the building can be used only after  renovation work and temporary arrangements need to be done before it re-opens after Onam vacation. Kasaba police said that the area was prone to attack by wild elephants and such incidents occur only at night.
