A Nepalese communist community organizer was killed in a wild elephant attack in the Bara district of south-eastern Nepal on Sunday, eKantipur reports.

Ganga Bal, 35, was a local leader in the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), not to be confused with the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) or the Communist Party of Nepal (Marxist-Leninist). She was a member of the CPN-Maoist State Committee of Bhojpura.

Bal was out on a morning walk in the little village of Amalekhgunj when the attack occurred. Her body was discovered behind the local office of the Nepal Oil Corporation.

Bara has been the site of four elephant-attack deaths in the past one-and-a-half months.
