The lake was shut as a precautionary measure. A team from the Lala Lajpat Rai University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (LUVAS) collected the samples that would be sent to the Regional Disease Diagnostic Laboratory at Jalandhar for testing. “The report is expected in the next 7-10 days,” said NK Mahajan, university’s disease investigation officer.
