A mobile court in Sirajganj has sentenced four fishermen to jail for allegedly catching 'mother hilsa' defying the government order in the river Jamuna.

Sirajganj Sadar upazila executive officer and executive magistrate Anwar Parvez conducted the mobile court on Tuesday morning. At that time, four fishermen were arrested for violating the ban on catching hilsa. They were given 10 days of jail sentence each.

According to the mobile court sources, the seized 14 kg of hilsa fish was distributed at the local orphanage and 46,000 meters of illegal nets were seized and set on fire.
