Flutter in Centre after BBC exposure

A BBC report exposing the “extra judicial killings” inside the Kaziranga National Park in Assam touches off a seismic wave of anger in forest and environment ministry who demands action against the reporter and producer.

A rattled National Tiger Conservation Authority has threatened legal action alleging it an attempt to create a wrong impression on the one horn rhino abode.

NCTA has further moved the UK embassy seeking action against the journalists who in a recent report focused the

Inhuman activities of the forest guards for conserving the one horn animal where the neighbouring people have been bearing the brunt.

BBC sources, however, have justified the story and suggested the authorities to go through the story in toto.
