The administrator of Asia's biggest cattle market at Sohrab Goth, Irshad Ahmed, said on Wednesday that arrangements and initial work for setting up Asia's biggest cattle market at Sohrab Goth are under way.

A number of facilities have been established in order to avoid hassle, as millions of people would be coming to the mandi to buy animals, he said.

The market will be set up on 1,200 acres of land and its planning has been finalised. Work is under way for the necessary facilities including financial, security arrangements and lighting. Police and Rangers will take care of the security issues.
