The tiny Pobitora wildlife sanctuary ( 38.81 sq km) in central Assam known for its rhino density, lost a rhino to poachers who used a .303 rifle to kill the beast. The armed gang of four illegal hunters fired at the guards continuously and got away in the cover of darkness.
Subsequently, on the 16th of June, a school teacher was arrested in connection with the poaching. Read the Times of India article.
