Nobody knows who kills rhinos
52 one-horned rhinos were poached inside Kaziranga National Park and 97 in surrounding Golaghat, Karbi Anglong, Sonitpur and Nagaon districts between 2009 and early 2014. Though 247 people have been arrested for poaching during the period, not a single one has been convicted so far. This is according to the response to a query under the Right To Information Act filed by wildlife activist Rohit Choudhury. As per the police department's data, more rhinos have been poached in the past five years than ever before. Professional poachers are getting help from various insurgent groups who are supplying arms, trading in horns and even killing the rhinos. A P Rout, additional director general of police and in-charge of the Anti Rhino-poaching Special Task Force (STF), declined to comment on this saying he joined STF only two months ago.
