Officials of the Forest Department have recovered 30 kilograms of venison from a boat in Pashur River at Chila in Mongla upazila on Monday night, reports agency sources. Acting on a tip-off, a team of the Forest Department conducted a drive in the area at night and challenged a boat, said Md Mahmudul Hasan, divisional forest officer (DFO) of Sundarbans East Zone. Sensing danger, a four-member poaching gang fled the scene, leaving the boat behind.
Later, the team recovered the venison hidden inside the boat.
“The team has identified the poachers as residents of different villages in the upazila,” said the official, adding that necessary action would be taken against them.
