Kropki Sudoku Puzzle (Fun With Sudoku #280)

Once upon a time Kropki Sudoku Puzzle was one of my most feared Sudoku puzzle type. This is the one of the Sudoku puzzle type in which without giving any hints, this Sudoku can be solved uniquely and logical. However some of the Kropki Sudoku puzzles are very tough and most of the experienced players try to solve Kropki Sudoku with a guess or bifurcation. Kropki Sudoku is also known with another name called Dots Sudoku. However Kropki Sudoku name is used in most of World Sudoku Championships and other Sudoku competition. This Kropki Sudoku puzzle, I am publishing as part of Fun With Sudoku Series as 280th Sudoku Puzzle in this Series.
