Raveena Tandon strongly condemned the recent incident of a Rhino getting hit by a speeding truck on a highway in Assam’s Kaziranga national park. The unfortunate episode, which is going viral on the internet, saw a truck changing lanes at the last moment to avoid hitting the Rhino, however, fails to do so. The animal tries to get up on his feet after the collision but falls again.
Expressing outrage, Raveena called out authorities for not ‘fencing off the roads and highways that pass through the forests. She also mentioned it was high time for common folk to learn and act appropriately.
