During the operation, three buses and two trucks bound for Chittagong from Satkhira were searched, and approximately 3,350 (three thousand three hundred and fifty) kg of poisonous jelly-pushed shrimps were seized,” said Munif  Taqi.”As the real owner of the jelly-pushed shrimp could not be found, no one could be arrested.
