    Prices for sheep ahead of Eid-ul-Adha (Bakrid) have gone up in Hyderabad. Traders are selling a pair of sheep for between Rs 28,000 and Rs 30,000, which is Rs 8,000 more than last year. This means Muslims planning to sacrifice animals on Bakrid are struggling to find an animal within their budget. In temporary markets in Balapur and Mehdipatnam last year, the cost of a pair of sheep was between Rs 23,000 and Rs 25,000. This year, however, it has risen to Rs 30,000. Bakrid falls on June 29 and is observed on the 10th day of the last Islamic month ‘Zilhajjah’.
