A team of Nepali police destroyed around 3,000 chicks smuggled into Nepal from India fearing bird flu (avian influenza), Nepali national news agency RSS reported on Wednesday .

A team of patrolling police seized the chicks from Everest FeedFactory in Kapilvastu district, some 200 km southwest of capital Kathmandu brought from Gorakhpur of India through secret routes and buried them.

"Acting on a tip-off of locals, we impounded the poultry and destroyed them," report quoted Pipara Chandra Gaire, chief at Armed Police Force in the district as saying.

The import of livestock products, including chickens and eggs, from India has been banned in Nepal following bird flu (avian influenza) outbreak in some Indian cities bordering to Nepal.

District-based poultry entrepreneurs say the quarantine check post has done nothing to control rising cases of poultry import from India, according to the report.

Within the past week alone, police had destroyed chickens imported from India in Bardiya and Banke districts, an indication that there has been no let-up in import of poultry products from India.

Despite several measures to discourage cross-country poultry trade, smugglers have been taking advantage of open border, and are engaged in importing poultry products from the neighboring country, said the report.
