In prey−predator system prey population take various mechanisms to save themselves from predators. In this work we consider a prey−predator model with a transmissible disease spreading in predator population and prey gathered in a group so it exhibits a herd behavior. We used Holling type−II response function for spreading of disease among predators and find the impact of herd behavior mechanism of prey population in the model system both analytically and numerically. Sufficient conditions are
