2800 Kg 'Hilsa' Fish Smuggled From Bangladesh During Pandemic

BSF has confiscated around 2,800 kg of banned 'Hilsa' worth Rs 75 lakh from the Indo-Bangla border in the last 7 months. Hilsa, from river Padma, is sold at Rs 2500-3000/kg in the black market. BSF stated, smugglers infiltrate through riverine borders of Malda and Murshidabad at night. Bangladesh put a ban on its export eight years ago, known as 'Hilsa Diplomacy', amid sharing-dispute over Teesta river with West Bengal.
