As many as nine brow-antlered deer, also known as Sangai, are missing from the Keibul Lamjao National Park in Manipur due to heavy rainfall lashed in the State for the past couple of weeks.

According to reports, on Sunday, eight kharsa (hog deer) and one fawn deer were found in nearby villages. Locals got hold of one kharsa and safely released within the national park premises.

On Monday, a Sangai was rescued from a house in Komlakhong area, which is near Loktak lake.
