Wildlife Sanctuary Authorities and Police Collaborate to Apprehend Notorious Poacher

The Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary authorities, in collaboration with the Morigaon Police force, achieved a significant victory in their ongoing battle against poaching. They successfully apprehended Abdul Khalek, a notorious poacher, during a night-time operation in the village of Gorumoradoloni within the sanctuary. Khalek’s arrest led to the seizure of firearms, including a .303 rifle and a 7.65 pistol, highlighting the grave danger he posed to wildlife and the sanctuary’s inhabitants. While Khalek’s capture marks a notable achievement, it also underscores the persistent threat of poaching networks. Despite some accomplices evading arrest, the joint efforts of the wildlife sanctuary authorities and police demonstrate a steadfast commitment to protecting the region’s biodiversity for future generations.
