        Chicken, eggs banned in Kishanganj, Katihar

        By Bhuvaneshwar Prasad, TNN | Mar 11, 2013

        KISHANGANJ/KATIHAR: As the bird flu scare spreads like wildfire, Kishanganj and Katihar districts have now come under the high alert cover and the authorities have pulled up their socks to tackle the situation.

        Kishanganj's borders with West Bengal are now sealed and like in the case of Purnia, the sale of chicken and eggs has been banned across Kishanganj and Katihar districts.

        The government employees have been asked not to proceed on any leave and teams are being formed to kill the chickens.

        Katihar Civil Surgeon (CS) Dr Yogendra Prasad said, "At the moment, no case of bird flu has surfaced. Nonetheless, in consonance with the Union health ministry's advisory, all kinds of precautionary measures are being taken in the district."

        Kishanganj CS Afhaq Ahmad Lari said that sufficient quantities of medicine to combat the bird flu scare are available with the sadar hospital. The health officials have been directed to keep a constant watch on the situation.

        Kishanganj district animal husbandry officer Ram Naresh Mishra said, "Though no case of bird flu has been reported from any part of the district, we are not taking any chances."

        Meanwhile, bird flu specialist Dr Biswas has been monitoring the entire culling operation of the chickens across Purnia district.

        The health officials have detected suspected bird flu cases at Maranga hatchery in Purnia.


        Accordingly, the culling of chickens was taken up on emergency basis in and around Maranga and three blocks in the district were declared high-risk zones, health officials said.

        The districts of Kishanganj and Purnia are the largest exporters of chicken to distant places in Bihar as well as Jharkhand, hence special care is being taken to prohibit the export of chickens from the two districts, official sources said.
