The Odisha government on Monday sought a report from Chief District Veterinary Officer (CDVO) of Cuttack on the killing of a large number of sheeps under mysterious circumstances in Niali area.
Fisheries and Animal Resources Development Minister Damodar Rout said a report has been sought from the CDVO, Cuttack after getting to know about killing of about 150 sheep within a period of two months.
Cuttack district collector Nirmal Mishra has asked the officials to set up a team to investigate into death of sheep.
The team would consist of local tehsildar, local police inspector, forest officials. Some villagers would also be taken into the team, Mishra said.
