Chitwan, July 2:
The Chitwan National Park has decided to further strengthen park security to curb illegal poaching of one-horned rhino and other wild animals.
The security consolidation plan comes in view of the illegal activities of poachers who kill the endangered rhinos for their horns.
As per the new security strategy, the number of security posts inside the park will be increased. Similarly, night time park patrolling will also be increased.
The security personnel will be equipped with efficient communication devices and the patrolling tracks will be graveled.
Chief warden of the national park Jhamak Bahadur Karki said that the enhanced security arrangement especially targets protection of rhinos found only in Nepal and India.
Karki said that road sections from Kashara to Tiger Tops was graveled recently under the plan.
Motorcycle and bicycle patrolling will also be conducted in the park, especially during the day.
"We have even trying to establish collaboration with security personnel across the border in India in order to discourage the activities of poachers from India. Exchange of relevant information is planned," said Karki.
