Tripura Eid

Agartala, July 10: Tripura animal resource development department said no animals can be slaughtered in any municipal areas, including the Agartala Municipal Corporation on Eid-ul Zuha, as any animal killing outside the slaughterhouse would be considered illegal under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.
