While India holds the notorious record of witnessing maximum selfie deaths in the world for two successive years, here’s one instance where selfies have actually turned helpful.
The Assam Police has tracked down two poachers through the selfies clicked inside Kaziranga National Park in northeastern India. The duo had allegedly killed a female rhino in June last year, and were arrested on Wednesday in central Assam’s Nagaon district, the Hindustan Times reported.
The Kaziranga National Park is a UNESCO world heritage site and houses two-thirds of the planet’s great one-horned rhinoceros. There are 2,401 rhinos in the sanctuary of which nearly 800 are females.
The report further added that one of the photographs had the poacher smiling with what appeared to be two automatic rifles fitted with silencers in the backdrop. Police said that their “informers” got hold of the images.
