TRIPURA, INDIA - Following recent cases of avian influenza reported from West Bengal, neighbouring Assam and Bangladesh, Tripura yesterday sounded an alert and banned import of poultry from these places.

"We have imposed a ban on poultry import from West Bengal, Assam and Bangladesh following reports of an outbreak of bird flu in those places.

"But we have no objection in bringing poultry from Punjab and Haryana because those States are not affected by the disease," The Hindu Business Line cites the Director of Animal Resource Department (ARD), Mr Manoranjan Sarkar, as saying.
