the internationally-famous Kaziranga National Park before making good their

escape after axing off the horn.

poachers shot dead a male rhinoceros at Kukurkata under Burhapahar range

of the park using AK 47 assault rifles.

The poachers then axed off the horn from the torso of the giant beast before fleeing.

However, there are reports of a shootout between the poachers and forest

guards after the rhino was killed.

However, there has been no word from park authorities as to whether there

were any casualties or injuries on either side amid reports of the poachers

managing to escape.

rejig of the Assam ministry when Parimal Suklabaidya was made the new Forest

minister replacing Pramila Rani Brahma.
