Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Wednesday directed the Deputy Commissioners and Superintendents of Police of three districts covering Kaziranga National Park to take all possible measures to protect rhinos from poachers.

“Saving rhinos from extinction must be taken up as a mission to protect them from poachers and we shall extend all
possible support in this regard,” Sonowal said in a meeting with DCs and SPs of Jorhat, Golaghat and Nagaon districts along with senior forest officials.

He said that whatever measure needs to be undertaken shall be adopted, including suggestions and advice from international experts for protecting rhinos and Kaziranga National Park, a World Heritage site. “Anyone linked to the poaching of rhinos in Kaziranga National Park will not be spared,” he added.
