According to reports, the forest department officials received a tip off about the possible strike by poacher in the park. But before the poachers could carry out their evil design, the alert forest guards posted in the park intercepted them and were challenged to surrender.

Instead of laying down their arms, the poacher indulged in indiscriminate firing, said a park official who added that the anti-poaching squad effectively retaliated by returning the gun-fire in which two poachers were killed in Agaratoli forest range.

It may be mentioned here that in comparison to killing of 21 rhino in the current year by poacher, a total of 15 poachers have also been shot dead by the anti-poaching squad of the Kaziranga National Park in the same period. This includes the poachers shot dead on Saturday night, said an official of the forest department.

    Not often do we rejoice on hearing that humans have died, but these are those rare moments. A lesson for people to look at other professions and a relief for wild animals that have equal right to live on this planet. Kudos to the park rangers.
