Rhino poachers strike again

BOKAKHAT: Rhino poachers are back in Kaziranga leaving the much hyped multi layered security to protect the pride of Assam.

After a brief halt the poachers struck in Baghmari range of Kaziranga in Biswanath killing a full grown rhino and chop off the horn.

Forest guards deployed in the Sixth part of the world heritage site spotted the carcass on Sunday wee hours.

Local residents have blamed the forest guards for failing to protect the rhinos.
