Animal police station in Kaziranga

Stunned by unabated rhino poaching, Dispur is seriously considering a proposal to set up an animal police station in Kaziranga.

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi told reporters in Dispur on Friday that the process is on for clearance. He hoped that the police station---first of its kind in the noth east would help the world heritage site save the one horn rhinos.

Notably, poachers have killed 8 rhinos for horns during the last two months.
