Coast guards seize illegal fishing nets


The Bangladesh Coast Guard seized about 22,00,000 metres of illegal ‘current’ net and 7,000 metres of ‘sandbar-surrounding’ nets  from the East Bay on Sunday.

The nets were burnt at the order of the district fisheries officer, said Coast Guard east zone media officer Lieutenant Shah Zia Rahman.  

The coast guards are working to maintain law and order, contain robbery, drug dealing and other illegal activities in the coastal area, a press release said.
