BENGALURU:The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike has set up special squads and roped in NGOs to check illegal slaughter of animals during this Bakrid on Friday.

BBMP Animal Husbandry Department joint director KNA Nanjappa said animals should be sacrificed only at the designated slaughter houses. “We have appealed to the religious leaders to cooperate by sending a message to the community not to dump animal waste in streets. Our squads will be watching and any illegal activity will be dealt with seriously,” he told Express.

The BBMP has also directed all the zonal commissioners to provide additional vehicles to dispose animal waste.

Special focus will be on East and West Zone where there is a higher concentration of community members. Posters have also been put up in 150 wards about special bins put up by the BBMP for dumping of animal waste.  Jamaia Masjid Khateeb-O-Imaan Maqsood Imran Rashadi said the community has been given clear direction this time to celebrate Eid by keeping cleanliness in mind. “About 800 masjids in the city has been instructed to  send this message during Eid prayers.” He further added that people have been requested to bury animal waste in a pit and cover it with soil.
