Guwahati: The Gauhati High Court has passed an order asking Kaziranga National Park authorities to conduct eviction of illegal occupants residing inside the National Park.

Along with the Kaziranga National Park authorities, the High Court had also passed an order asking district administrations of Golaghat, Nagaon, and Sonitpur district to submit a report by November 23 regarding the eviction of the people residing inside the wildlife reserve.

More than 32 families have already been given notice by the Golaghat district administration on Wednesday to vacate the land within 10 days.

In 2016, an eviction was done at Bandar Dubi and Deosur. While in 2015, the Gauhati High Court has given notice regarding the eviction drive which provoked strong protests among the people.

However, these orders come in the backdrop of a lot of people encroaching upon forest land resulting in an increasing number of man-animal conflicts which has seen casualties and grievous injuries on both sides.
