Green Tri­bunal (NGT) has slammed the As­sam gov­ern­ment over a large num­ber of an­i­mal deaths in Kazi­ranga Na­tional Park due to ac­ci­dents on high­ways. Most an­i­mal deaths oc­cur in the fa­mous na­tional park due to traf­fic move­ment on the Na­tional High­way-37 that passes through the home of the fa­mous one-horned rhi­noc­eros. NGT has di­rected the BJP gov­ern­ment to sub­mit a sta­tus re­port on the in­stal­la­tion of sen­sor­op­er­ated au­to­mated traf­fic bar­ri­ers and ve­hi­cles with in­ter­cep­tor speed sen­sors by De­cem­ber 15, the next date of hear­ing. It also sought a re­port on the ex­act num­ber of an­i­mal ca­su­al­ties so far due to road ac­ci­dents on the na­tional high­way.
