Korba, Sep 30 (PTI) A 22-year-old man died after being

mauled by sloth bears in Chhattisgarh''s Koriya district, a

forest official said on Wednesday.

Manoj Singh, the deceased, was attacked by bears in

Nawapara locality of Chirmiri town, a hilly area surrounded by

forest, on Monday night, he said.

On hearing the cries of a bear cub that was entangled

in a barbed wire fence of a vegetable farm, Manoj went to

check when three or four adult bears attacked him, said forest

ranger Suryadev Singh.

Some people rushed to his help and chased the animals

away.

Forest personnel rescued the bear cub and took Manoj

to a local community health centre and from there to

Baikunthpur district hospital where he died on Tuesday, Singh

said.

His family will be provided Rs 25,000 as instant aid

while the remaining compensation of Rs 5.75 lakh will be given

after completing necessary formalities, the official added.

Also on Monday, an elderly man was trampled to death

by an elephant when he had gone to graze cattle in Pratappur

forest range of neighbouring Surajpur district, officials

said.

The region is over 300 km away from the state capital

Raipur. PTI COR TKP
