24 November 2015, Nirapad News: Members of Bangladesh Coast Guard in a drive seized 600-kg of Jatka (small hilsa fish) from three launches in Sripur river under Mehendiganj upazila of the district last night.
Acting on a tip-off, a team of coast guard from Barisal halted three Dhaka-bound launches ‘MV-Sundarban, MV-Jamal and MV-Jahid-4’ and seized the Jatka searching the launches, said Zila fisheries officer Bimal Das.
However, the fish traders fled the scene sensing the presence of the Coast Guard members.
The seized Jatka was distributed among poor people and different madrasas and orphanages in the district this morning.
