With authorities in neighbouring Assam ordering culling of poultry after suspected cases of bird flu in its Kamrup district, Meghalaya on Friday sounded an alert to prevent outbreak of the disease in the state.

State's veterinary officials had a meeting to assess the preparedness and adopt measures to prevent the disease from spreading to the state.

A veterinary official said deputy commissioners of all districts have been asked to be on alert, even as he said there were no cases of suspected bird flu in the state so far.
