Bangladesh pirates terrorise Sunderbans

In the first week of May, 20 villagers from Kalitola and Hingalgunj block had set out for the Gazikhali Shorshuna area of the Sunderbans in four small boats to collect honey from the interiors of the jungle. It got dark by the time they finished, and as the boats made their way out of an inlet, their path was blocked by two bigger boats, five of them were taken prisoner at gun point and the remaining forced to load the catch of the day — 50 kgs of fresh honey — on to the Bangladeshi boats.
