Golaghat: Prohibitory orders under Section 144 CrPC has been clamped along National Highway 37 passing through Kaziranga National Park as the flood situation inside the world-famed sanctuary is yet to improve.

Official sources said here today the administrations of Bokakhat and Koliabor subdivisions have clamped Section 144 CrPC from Bokakhat to Jakhalabandha with vehicles directed not to cross the 40 km per hour limit till the flood situation inside the Park improves.

The low-lying areas of the Park have remained submerged and some animals have taken shelter in the neighbouring Karbi Hills and tea garden areas to the south of the Park.

Park Divisional Forest Officer Dibyadhar Gogoi said that the Brahmaputra was flowing below the danger level but several low lying areas were still submerged posing a danger to the animals.

There was, however, no report of any animal casualty so far, sources added.
