A wild elephant rampaged through a village in Bangladesh's Chittagong district, 264 km southeast of capital Dhaka, early Saturday, killing a girl and injuring two others.

Locals was quoted by private news agency UNB as saying the elephant came down from a nearby hill and tore through the house of Omar Faruq at Chunati village around 6 a.m. when the victims were asleep.

The elephant stampeded Faruq's daughter Halima Begum, 19, to death and injured his granddaughter Minhaj, 8, and relative Sanwara Begum, 35.

Hearing their screams, villagers rushed in and used torches to scare away the elephant.
