THE MOST costly sacrificial animal on the eve of Eid-ul-Azha was still awaiting its purchaser, with the seller demanding Rs 1.5 lakh.

According to sources, a white male goat, which seemed to have ‘Allah’ written in Arabic on its body in brown, had been brought for sale at Nai Sarak market by Gajendra Singh resident of Kannuj.

The last price offered was Rs 1.25 lakh, but Singh did not agree to the deal and was waiting for highest bidder, who could meet his demand.

Meanwhile, the local administration has taken precautions for peaceful celebrations of the festival, since, the Eid celebration had witnessed tussle between the Barelvis and Devbandis earlier.

Proper sanitation and security arrangements were initiated by the local administration including Badi Eidgah, six small Eidgahs and about 30 mosques of the Shia community in the city.

Namaz would be offered at 10 am at Badi Eidgah, Benajhabar.

The timing of namaz (prayer) would differ at mosques, said sources.
