Two forest officials faced wrath of people in Majuli after a strayed rhino killed a local villager on Tuesday.
The incident took place at 10 in the morning at Pohumara paddy field where despite repeated information of rhino terror, the forest officials needed nearly 4 hours to reach the spot.
Local residents told Assam Times that they did inform the forest department in the wee hours that a full grown rhino is moving freely in the area striking panic among the villagers. But of no avail.
At 7-30, the animal killed one person when he was trying to disperse the rhino. The shocking news also passed to the department.
Three hours after it, two forest officials reached the spot. But strangely, the duo had nothing to reign in the animal. The angry mob then attacked the duo.
