It is important to mention here that last year twenty rhinos have been killed by the poachers and in this year also the poachers have already killed seven rhinos. On the other hand various organizations including AASU has taken up various programmes including the blockade of national highway against the frequent killing of rhinos by the poachers. Therefore the State Govt. finally decided to hand over the investigation of rhino killings in Kaziranga National Park to the CBI. In connection with the ongoing investigation CBI recently sent a letter to the state forest department seeking some documents.
