59 fishermen held, 2.882 lakh meters nets seized in Shariatpur

Mobile court in separate drives arrested 59 fishermen along with current net and Hilsha in the last 24 hours from the rivers Padma and Meghna in the district.

 Later, the mobile court sentenced them to different terms of imprisonment for defying the government's ongoing 22-day ban on Hilsha fishing.

 A total of 59 fishermen were arrested with 65 kgs of mother Hilsha and 2.882 lakh meters of banned current nets during the drives, said District Fisheries Officer Pranab Kumar Karmakar.

 The mobile court sentenced 53 fishermen to different terms of jail and fined six fishermen Taka five thousand each, he said.

  The seized nets were destroyed and the seized Hilsha has been distributed to the orphanages, madrasas and poor people in the area.

  The government has imposed a 22-day ban starting from October 4 on catching, selling, storing and transporting Hilsha, to ensure safe spawning of the Mother Hilsha, during its peak breeding period.
