A rally was held at Sauraha of Ratnanagar, Chitwan this morning to mourn the poaching of a rare one-horned rhino that took place a week ago.

The rally was organised by the joint efforts of around 40 organisations based in the district.

A rhinoceros was found shot dead at the Jagatpur-based Hariyali Community Forest of western Chitwan on April 7.

On the occasion, Chitwan National Park’s assistant conservation officer Abhinaya Pathak insisted on the need of collective efforts to save this endangered species of wildlife. RSS
