Rhino strikes terror: 1 killed in Majuli



JORHAT: A strayed rhino from Kaziranga strikes no less terror in Majuli killing an old man in the river island on Monday.

The full grown animal which came out of the National Park two days back attacked Baloram Das at his house premises in the Bhakat Chapori area early in the morning.

Local residents told that as the 80 year old who came out of his house early in the morning countered the animal which attacked him in the houseyard.  A critically injured Baloram was then rushed to the hospital in critical condition and died a couple of hours later.

Forest guards have been trying to drive out the one horn animal to the national park. But they find it quite difficult to control it.

The local residents have blamed the forest department for failing to rein in the situation. " Four days have passed since we spotted the animal. The forest guards have come. But I don't understand why they can't drive away the animal from this human habitat," said Jatin Kalita, a local resident.
