Bangladesh Coast Guard seized 600-kg of jatka (small hilsa fish) from two launches on Dhaleswari river at Launch Ghat in Munshiganj on Monday.
A coast guard team conducted drives on launches “MV Zahid-7” and “Annatoma-1” and seized the Jatka after searching the launches, Coast Guard sources said. 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, according to a news agency. –
