A day before she embarks on her maiden visit to Kaziranga National Park, Forest minister Pramila Rani Brahma today said an investigation will be ordered into reports that some rhino horns kept at the government treasuries have gone missing.
“I have received allegations that some horns – those of rhinos which died naturally – kept at the treasuries have gone missing. We will definitely probe the matter. If anyone is found guilty, he or she will be given stringent punishment,” she told reporters.
Brahma will begin a two-day visit to Kaziranga tomorrow.
