BGB seizes 48kgs of dried turtle

Members of Border Guard Bangladesh yesterday seized at least 48 kilogrammes of dried turtles in Dinajpur’s Phulbari upazila.

The seized items are worth Tk 8.70 lakh, said Lt Col Sharif Ullah Abed, commanding officer of 29th BGB Battalion.

According to Sharif, a team of BGB conducted a raid in Sonaharpara village of the upazila on information that smugglers brought dried turtles from India through Dynur border.

BGB recovered the dried turtles but its carriers managed to flee, he said.

The seized item was deposited to Dinajpur Customs, he added.
