Sales of sacrificial animals begin today

The sacrificial animals are being taken to the markets on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha. Sales of sacrificial animals will officially start from today (June 13) at 20 cattle markets in two city corporations of the capital.

The last moment preparation is going on in the cattle markets. However, cattle traders started to bring their cattle one or two days before the official sale at the markets.

Concerned officials of the two city corporations said that nine temporary haats have been set up apart from Gabtali permanent haat in Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) area and 11 temporary haats have been set up apart from Sarulia permanent cattle haat in Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) area.

However, due to the court’s directive, cattle market will not be set up in Aftabnagar this year.

Piyal Hasan, Information Officer at North City Corporation Public Relations Department, said the cattle markets will remain open for 5 days from June 13 until the morning of Eid day this time. All types of preparations have been taken to ensure safe and smooth sale in the cattle markets.

Regarding the online sale, Piyal Hasan said that anyone can transact money by opening an instant bank account under the overall supervision of Bangladesh Bank. There will be numerous bank booths in the market area.
