Notably, this was the first instance of rhino killing in the Kaziranga National Park this year.

The forest department has initiated an investigation into the incident. 

Meanwhile, Special DGP GP Singh on Sunday visited the recent rhino poaching site and reviewed the ongoing anti-poaching operation in the park.

Last year, the Assam government formed the Anti-Poaching Task Force to curb rhino poaching in Kaziranga National Park and Tiger Reserve.

It is to be noted that instances of rhino killings have gone down drastically in the previous year, with a report of only one rhino being killed by poachers.
