Golden langur electrocuted

By Correspondent

BONGAIGAON, Feb 12 - A female golden langur died on the spot after she was electrocuted by a power line passing over Ujan Rabhapara village at Kakoijana area in Bongaigaon this afternoon.

The incident occurred when the primate had touched the wire while she was searching for food on the top of a tree. Luckily, her young baby was saved. The Forest department personnel took the body to Abhayapuri for post mortem.

Local residents have alleged that despite repeated requests to insulate the power lines in Kakoijana RF area, the concerned departments did not take up the issue seriously. Around 500 golden langurs are there in the reserve forest at present.

The village Ujan Rabhapara has become a tourist spot only because of the presence of the endangered primate species in its forest. The Forest department of the district had organised a public meeting and a photography competition with the help of NGOs in the recent past to spread awareness for the protection of the golden langur and its habitat, but practically basic issues have not been sorted out yet, alleged the local people.
