The deceased has been identified as Mamata Sethi of the same locality.
Mamata, who had been to collect mangoes from a nearby orchid in the wee hours accidentally came across the tusker which had sneaked into the village from the nearby forest.
The pachyderm reportedly lifted her with its trunk and slammed to the ground before trampling to death.
A few other locals who had also been to the orchid to pluck mangoes witnessed the whole episode and called up Forest Department officials for assistance.
The officials sent the body of the deceased for autopsy after reaching the spot.
They also launched an operation to drive away the tusker from the forest to avert further loss of life and property.
