Govt forms 8 surveillance teams for city cattle markets

Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Md Shafiqul Islam on Sunday asked the leaseholders to not allow hawkers or makeshift shops inside the cattle markets.

Sometimes [muggers or dope party members] snatch money from traders and buyers making them unconscious after feeding them poisonous food, and so makeshift shops and hawkers should not be allowed at cattle markets, he said, as reported by UNB.

The DMP commissioner instructed the cattle market lessees to set up permanent food shops and tea stalls inside the market, and also submit the identities of the shop owners to local police stations.

Shafiqul gave the directives at a coordination meeting on maintaining law and order and traffic arrangements on the occasion of the upcoming holy Eid-ul-Azha at the DMP headquarters recently, said DMP Deputy Commissioner (Media) Walid Hossain.

The DMP commissioner also said it will be better if facilities of selling sacrificial animals are available online under the name of each cattle market.

“This system will be safe for buying animals. Haat (market) authorities can avoid the possibility of financial losses by selling online too. If someone buys a cow online from outside instead of a cattle haat, no hashil (tax on sale of sacrificial animal) can be taken from him,” he added.

The commissioner also asked the deputy commissioners of the DMP’s Crime Division to ensure discipline in the movement of the sacrificial animal-laden vehicles.

Vehicle number, and driver's name, identity and photograph should be taken and kept with the local police station so that the driver can be identified quickly, he added.

The commissioner said the buyers and the sellers in the markets will abide by the hygiene rules. “We hope that everyone will follow health guidelines at the haats,” he added.

Govt forms 8 surveillance teams for city cattle markets

The Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock has formed eight surveillance teams to monitor the activities of the veterinary medical teams at the city cattle markets on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha.

According to a ministry press release, a deputy secretary of the ministry has been assigned to each team, reports BSS.

The Department of Livestock Services formed 18 veterinary medical teams and one specialist veterinary medical team for the cattle markets under the Dhaka north and south city corporations to provide veterinary medical services at these markets.

The department concerned has also constituted four cattle market management monitoring teams and set up a control room management team for other related activities.

In addition, 1,213 veterinary medical teams have been formed under the Livestock Services Department for providing veterinary medical services at cattle markets across the country.

Besides, a central monitoring team was formed to monitor all these activities, the press release said.
