BANGLADESH - The government has decided to halt smuggling of cattle from India to ensure fair price for local farmers and traders during the Eid-ul-Azha.

The decision was taken at an inter-ministerial meeting chaired by State Minister for Fisheries and Livestock Md Ashraf Ali Khan Khasru at the Secretariat in Dhaka on Tuesday, the ministry said in a media release.

Bangladesh now has more cattle than the possible demand during Eid, which may fall on 12 August, a date subjected to the appearance of the moon, according to the ministry.

It assumes 11 million cattle will be slaughtered this Eid while the number of cattle is about 11.8 million.
