Assam: Police seize rhinoceros horn from two traffickers in Titabor

The two rhinoceros horn traffickers arrested were identified as Azizul Rahman and Rajan Bauri.

A police team led by Titabar’s Subdivision Police Officer (SDPO) Maitrayee Deka came to Titabar and caught a smuggler to sell 700 grams of rhinoceros horn for about Rs 150 million.

While Rajan Bauri was a resident of Chutjan Kathni Bagan in the Golaghat district, it was discovered that the accused Azizul Rahman happened to be hailing from Dakhin Hengera.

Currently, Titabar police have custody of the duo, and both defendants will appear in court on Monday, June 6.

Meanwhile, in a similar case, a rhino poacher who had long fled to Assam police from Rowing in Arunachal Pradesh was arrested on Saturday.

State police reportedly performed surgery based on the information received and arrested a man named Johor Ali.
