700kg shrimp injected with jelly like substance seized in Chandpur

CHANDPUR: Members of Coast Guards in a drive seized 700 kgs of shrimps with jelly like substances in their bodies from the estuary of the Padma River in the district on Saturday.

Tipped off, a team of coast guard led by Lieutenant Rohan Majur of Chandpur sub-station conducted a drive in a trawler and recovered the shrimps in the afternoon.

However, no one was arrested in this connection. Later, the Coast Guard members destroyed the shrimps.

Some unscrupulous businessmen inject jelly like substances into shrimps to increase their weight to cheat consumers.
