“The herd was imported from the US and arrived on Monday afternoon on a Turkish Airlines flight.

“We seized them as the import of Brahman-breed cows are not legal in the country,” the deputy commissioner added.

He also said that the herd will temporarily be kept at the Central Cow Breeding and Dairy Farm in Savar under the custody of the Livestock Department.
