Rhino poaching revisits Kaziranga


One more rhinoceros was killed by poachers in the Kaziranga National Park on Saturday.


The poaching took place at Sohola camp in Agoratoli just before the forest guards engaged in a gun battle with poachers who later managed to escape.


An encounter followed with the poachers exchanging bullets with the guards but none from the security forces was injured. When the forest personnel searched around, they found the carcass of a rhino with its horn removed. A 303 rifle with ammunition belonging to the poachers was recovered from the area.
