Aurangabad, Jan 28 (PTI) The samples of some peacocks

found dead in Maharashtra''s Beed district a few days back have

tested positive for avian influenza, an official said on

Thursday.

Three peacocks, two peahens and another wild bird were

found dead in Loni village close to Balaghat mountain range in

Shirur Kasar taluka of Beed on January 22, the official said.

"The samples of these dead birds were sent to labs for

analysis to check if they died due to avian flu. Their samples

have tested positive for the bird flu infection," he said.

Dr Pradip Aghav, an animal husbandry department

km periphery of the spot, where these birds were found dead,

are being collected.

"We have collected nearly 113 samples from the area

and they are being sent for analysis," he said.

area after January 22, but they tested negative for bird flu.

Their samples will be analysed to know where these birds were
