KNP guards to get AK rifles
STAFF REPORTER
 GUWAHATI, March 8 – Forest and Environment Minister Rockybul Hussain today told the Assembly that rhino poaching in Kaziranga National Park had taken a spurt with poachers increasingly using sophisticated weapons, and that the Forest Department was also equipping itself in a matching manner to counter the well-organized racket.

Replying to a query from Keshab Mahanta (AGP), Hussain said that KNP’s forest personnel would soon get AK series rifles as poachers were also found to be using such weapons.
