Kokakhuwa: An inhumane activity in the area of Kokakhuwa brought to the attention of concerned humans. A fishmonger from the area was observed slaughtering a river dolphin and selling it in an open market.
The incident came to the notice of police authorities only after the tweets and stories shared by the humanitarian public from the area.
The selling of a river dolphin took place within the Kokakhuwa area near Dihing river in Dibrugarh district at about 11.30 am on Thursday.
