Bengaluru, Apr 09: The Bengaluru civic agency has prohibited animal slaughter and sale of meat on Sri Rama Navami on April 10.
"There will be a blanket ban on the slaughterhouses, animal slaughter and the sale of meat on Sri Rama Navami," the joint director of the animal husbandry department of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike said in the order.
