On the occasion of Eid al-Adha, the district magistrate of Gautam Budh Nagar has ordered that the sacrifice of animals should only take place at the designated places and if anyone is found doing it publicly then a strict action will be taken.

This was said in the high profile meeting of the district administration on August 20. Officers also issued the guidelines for the occasion.

The DM instructed the officials to ensure that the remaining parts of sacrificed animals should not be disposed of or thrown in ponds, drains, open grounds and public places.

The DM ordered the electricity department to ensure no power cuts on the day at places where people offer prayers and the areas where they live.

According to an official, the DM also instructed that stray animals should not be allowed near the places of prayers like Masjid.

The administration ordered the officials to repair the roads near places of worship and also make arrangement for the drinking water at those places.

Ajay Pal Sharma, SSP of Gautam Budh Nagar said that on the occasion, people should give information about any crime so that police should act on that as soon as possible.

The administration also instructed the traffic police to ensure smooth vehicle movement around the places of worship.

Strict actions will be taken against the people who will be found spreading rumours on the occasion. Police will have a strong vigil around sensitive places.
