>biggest avian flu infection detected, city dwellers panic

>CULLING of some 1.65 lakh chickens at a poultry farm at Badda in the capital that began Saturday night after the detection of deadly avian influenza virus, which the officials say is the biggest ever culling in the country so far, continues today.
The staffs at Omega Poultry Farm Limited at Beraid in Badda first suspected bird flu infection on February 10 when 20 chickens at the farm died suddenly.
“It alarmed us all because, usually, no more than one or two chickens die a day. And the number of deaths doubled a couple of days later,” said Alif Ahmed Khan, chairman of the farm.
Set up on 9-acre land, the farm is run with machines “without any human involvement”, he said.

Livestock officials started culling fowls at the farm yesterday evening after digging a 45×25×8 cubic feet pit on the farmland for dumping the fowls.
