PESHAWAR, May 5 (APP): Since the fixing of head money for killing big
rats in provincial metropolis of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa did not yield positive results, the district administration of Peshawar has now announced “operation combat” against the exotic species of rats that had killed eight children and injured over 400 persons so far in the city.
The district administration has constituted a committee comprising
officials of Health, Agriculture and Water and Sanitation Department to
kick off house to house combat operation against the rats and their
multiplication, official sources said.
The district administration has initially released an amount of Rs One
million for the operation and research based action and the amount could further be increased up to Rs 10 million to wipe out the menace of rats from the city, it was informed.
