News Desk :
The Dhaka North and Dhaka South city corporations have designated 329 spots to slaughter sacrificial animals during Eid-ul-Azha amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis, reports
In 2019, the authorities fixed 775 places for slaughtering cattle.
Each of the 75 wards under the DSCC will have one spot to slaughter animals while DNCC will have 254 places in its 52
wards. Ward Nos. 21 and 22 in DNCC are yet to be allocated any designated area.
The number of designated spots in neighbourhoods under the jurisdiction of DSCC was 502 last year while the DNCC had 273.
"Our experience shows that no-one comes to our designated places to sacrifice the animals. We waste thousands of takas to prepare those places. Our citizens are lack awareness of the issue," Shah Md Emdadul Haque, chief executive officer of DSCC, told
"That's why we've reduced the number of the designated places. The councillors proposed not to keep any place designated for slaughtering the animals.  But we decided in the board meeting to keep some designated areas and fixed one in each of the 75 wards."
Along with the 254 spots in DNCC neighbourhoods, an area has been fixed in Mohammadpur's Bosila where up to 2,000 cattle can be slaughtered, according to Mayor Atiqul Islam.
