At the weekly cattle market in Balikuchi 50 km from Guwahati in Assam, cattle traders are a worried lot. There are about 500 animals up for sale, down from the average of 800 till a few weeks earlier. That is, before the government introduced a nationwide ban on sale of cattle for slaughter at the animal markets. "People are terrified and disturbed and that is why they are not coming to the market," acknowledged Afaz Ali, who organises the weekly cattle market, told NDTV.
