Guwahati, May 8: The body of a 55-year-old woman was found this morning inside Amchang wildlife sanctuary.

“We suspect that she was attacked by the elephant when she visited the sanctuary. The body has been sent for post-mortem to ascertain the exact cause of death,” divisional forest officer, Guwahati wildlife division, Dibyadhar Gogoi, said.

The forest department lodged an FIR at Satgaon police station in this connection.
