      The development comes a day after the Bhopal lab confirmed flu in a migratory bird found dead at the Siswan reserve in the district.

      The authorities are now gearing up for culling 53,000 poultry birds at the two farms in Behra village: Alpha and Royal.

      “We have received the confirmation letter from the Bhopal lab. We have constituted 25 teams to begin culling,” said VK Janjua, additional chief secretary, animal husbandry and dairy department, Punjab.

      The notification in this regard is awaited from the Centre, he said, adding that according to the head count done by the department, 53,000 birds are to be culled. The operations are expected to begin on Thursday....https://www.hindustantimes.com/citie...162019545.html
