Guwahati, Aug. 22: Aaranyak, a non-governmental organisation for preservation and restoration of wildlife and environment, has expressed concern over the killing of conservation worker Esob Ali in Morigaon district by unidentified assailants.

Ali, a resident under Mayong police station of Morigaon district, died at Guwahati Medical College Hospital (GMCH) today. At least five persons attacked Ali with sharp weapons when he was returning home from Buraburi market near Pobitora wildlife sanctuary on Thursday.

Ali was admitted to GMCH in a critical condition on Thursday night.

Secretary general of Aaranyak Bibhab Kumar Talukdar said Ali, for past 15 years, had been assisting the conservation and protection agencies functioning in Pobitora wildlife sanctuary to protect rhinos.

He assisted forest and police officials with vital intelligence inputs on poachers' movement, their arms and ammunition and the like. This saved the lives of at least 15 rhinos in and around the wildlife sanctuary.
