The rhinos have taken shelter in different locations in Majuli for the last couple of days and are currently moving in and around the villages in the district.

Nripen Bhuyan, a Forest staff of Majuli district said that five rhinos of Kaziranga National Park strayed into Majuli.

"Out of five rhinos, one rhino is now taking shelter at the Kerela Chapori area. Last night the rhino was roaming at Major Chapori, Malaya Chapori, Kuli Chapori. Five rhinos entered into Majuli and two out of five have now been moving towards West side," Bhuyan further said.
