A 35-year old labourer was killed by an elephant near his house late last night in Alandurai, police said today.

Hearing the screams, neighbours rushed to the rescue of Dharman, who was already dead. However, they managed to scare away the elephant and alerted the police.

Police rushed to the spot and after retrieving the body, sent it for post-mortem to the Government hospital here.
