Two forest officials were injured in a rhino attack during a census operation in Assam's Kaziranga National Park (KNP) on Sunday, officials said.
The incident took place under Bagori forest range in the park, where forest officials were involved in the two day long census process.
Divisional forest officer (DFO) Aniruddha Dey and forest guard Hemchandra Dutta were attacked by a female rhino and its calf during the census operation.
"The officials were astride an elephant inside the park and the elephant was attacked by a female rhino and its calf. The elephant panicked during the incident and the forest officials fell and were injured," a park official said.
