Assam Police and forest officials on Wednesday arrested three tiger poachers near Assam’s Orang National Park and Tiger Reserve.

The arrested poachers were identified as Azibur Rahman, Hasmat Ali and Mohammad ML.

Pradipta Baruah, DFO of Mangaldai Wildlife Division told ANI, “A few days ago, a carcass of a tiger was found from the premise of arrested poacher Azibur Rahman’s house.

“We have suspected that a 5-6 members poacher gang had killed the tiger and buried it in Bosa Simalu village near the Orang National Park. Today, we have arrested three of the poacher gang and they were produced before the court. Our operations are on to catch others of the gang,” the DFO said.
