The district authorities today excluded two poultry farms from its list of commercial units where culling operations are to be carried out to break the chain of transmission of avian influenza.
Deputy Commissioner Mukesh Kumar Ahuja said two poultry farms – Naveen and Sunil in Kheri village – don’t fall in the 1-km radius of the infected zone. Culling operations would now be restricted to just three farms.
While culling operations at two epicentres – Siddharth in Kheri and Nature in Ganauli village - have already been completed, the drive is underway at Narender Poultry Farm.
