Guwahati: Assam was hit by a second wave of floods on Tuesday, a week after the south-west monsoon arrived in the northeast on June 14.

The Assam government has sought opinion from the people on trimming rhino horns to save them from poachers.

This year, poachers have killed 11 rhinos in the state and chopped off their horns. Two rhinos have been killed at Kaziranga National Park since Wednesday.
"We are seeking the opinion of people. I want to make it clear we are not talking of dehorning but trimming of horns, similar to trimming of hair,'' said forest minister Rockybul Hussain.
