While talking to The Independent, Devdas Bhattacharya, the CMP Additional Commissioner (Crime and Operation) said that they would not allow any unauthorised cattle market in the city.  “As part of maintaining law and order in and around the cattle markets, we have decided to install CCTV cameras in Sagarika and Bibirhat from September 18,” added Bhattacharya.  “Besides, we will also deploy policemen in plain cloth so that people could buy and sell sacrificial animals without fear. There will be makeshift police camps in every authorised cattle market of the city. We request people to seek our help in carrying large sum of money during Eid-ul-Azha.

The sacrificial animals will begin to come to the markets within the next few days,” said Oli Ullah, President of Chittagong Cattle Cooperative Association Ltd.    “This year we hope to make brisk business as there is a huge demand for local cows in Chittagong.
