Rhino killed, another injured by poachers

[India News]: Morigan, Jan 16 : A rhino was killed and another injured by poachers, who decamped with the dead animal's horn, inside Pabitora wildlife sanctuary in Morigaon district of Assam, police said today.

The poachers extracted the horn after killing the two-and-a-half-year old rhino and also injured another at Murkota Dubartoli last night, police said.

Forest guards have cordoned off the area and launched a massive search operation.

Pabitora sanctuary has one of the highest concentration of the one-horned rhino regarded as one of the world's most endangered species. PTI
