Poachers have killed yet another one-horned rhino in Orang National Park in Assam, officials said on Saturday.

Authorities said they recovered a carcass of a male rhino near Pichola anti-poaching camp in the park on Friday. The horn of the rhino was missing, indicating it to be a case of poaching.

“It was a full grown male rhino and there were bullet injury marks,” the park officials said.
