Kathmandu, June 23:

The City Police at the Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) said the number of stray cattle on the streets has decreased as compared to previous weeks. “Earlier, we used to ferry away cattle out of the Kathmandu valley every second day, but these days we do it only on Saturdays because the number of stray cattle has dwindled,” said City Police ASI Prakash Pundit . The KMC City Police and the Valley Traffic Police have been working jointly to rid the city streets of stray cattle, which have caused many road accidents. “We collect stray cattle at a place and take them to a safe place at Naubise of Dhading and leave them there,” Pundit said adding, earlier they used to take away cattle as far as Chitwan. This year some 464 cattle, mostly cows and bulls, were transported out of the valley.
