The acetone, chloroform, ethanol, methanol and petroleum ether extracts of the plant extracts showed different diameters of inhibition zone ranging between 8mm to 16 mm. diameter. Among themselves methanol leaf extract shows highest zone of inhibition against Shigella flexneri. Simultaneously acetone and petroleum ether leaf extract shown to effective against Klebsiella pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus.
