Poaching rerun in Kaziranga

After a brief lull, poachers have struck again in Kaziranga leaving a full grown rhino killed in the world heritage site. The incident took place in Burhapahar range where the poachers have killed the animal.

But they failed to take away the rhino as the forest guards reached the spot as soon as they came to hear the sound of gun firing. This was followed but a fierce gun fight where the poachers managed to vanish from the spot.
