KOLKATA: A gaur that escaped from the Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary died as a result of the “stress caused by being in an excited state for too long,” after it killed two women and injured four persons at Dwarikamari in West Bengal’s Cooch Behar district on Tuesday. Haridasi Mondal (60) and Chaya Adhikary (80), residents of Dwarikamari village, were killed when they were attacked by a gaur.
