Guwahati (Assam), Sep 9(ANI): The Assam Government on Wednesday said that it would set up five anti-poaching camps in the Orang National Park in order to prevent the poaching of the endangered one-horned rhinos.
The decision came in the wake of a stark increase in the number of poaching incidents that were reported from the park.
Earlier, Assam Forest Minister Rockybul Hussain had ordered a high-level probe. Several administrative officials, including Chief Conservator of Forest B S Bonal, had visited the park in order to prepare a report.
According to reports, along with the five anti-poaching camps, there will be two floating camps in the river. Meanwhile, twenty armed home guards and one assistant conservator of forest would be deployed to supervise the measures. (ANI)
