Guwahati, April 11 (IANS) Forest officials of the Kaziranga National Park (KNP) have recovered the body of a rhino from Bagori forest range of the National Park Wednesday. The rhino's horn was, however, missing.


The incident took place barely 72-hours after the authorities in the famous National Park completed census of the one-horned rhinos - which indicated a positive growth of the animal.


"Our guards also had a shootout with the suspected poachers who have killed the rhino, but, they managed to escape with the horn," said a senior forest official of the Park.


Forest officials later arrested eight people for their alleged links with the poaching.


Search operation in the villages around Park and patrolling inside the park have been intensified, the official informed.
