Authorities Wednesday sealed three Poultry Farms in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district for supplying and selling dead and half-dead chickens to shopkeepers and consumers.
Reports said that after receiving continuous complaints from the people, Tehsildar Pulwama, Altaf Ahmed raided some Poultry Farms and recovered hundreds of dead and half dead chickens. The said officer also raided various shops at Pohu, Badobagh, Littar and other areas and recovered half-dead chickens from the shopkeepers. “We imposed fine on these shopkeepers and sealed at least three Poultry Farms,” Altaf Ahmed told a local news agency, CNS.
