As the sheep are arriving in Hyderabad not only from other districts of Telangana but also from other states such as Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, etc., fuel charges is also an important factor in the rise in prices, he added.

Meanwhile, residents of Hyderabad are seen rushing to the markets to buy sheep fearing a shortage of sheep as Eid-ul-Adha draws closer.

Qurbani services in Hyderabad

Meanwhile, many people in Hyderabad are opting for Qurbani services instead of the traditional way of buying animals for the Qurbani.

Speaking to Siasat.com, one of the residents of Attapur Jameel Ahmed said, “I have been opting for the Qurbani services for the past two years. It is a better option as I can enjoy the festival instead of searching for a butcher who will be in high demand on Eid-ul-Adha’.
