The seepage spread in the Shela and the Pashur rivers and over 20 canals which criss-cross the Sundarbans, in the past four days while officials found four out of six chambers of the tanker, carrying 358,000 litres oil, damaged to cause the spill as it was salvaged two days ago.
The study was undertaken to assess the genetic diversity in three wild populations namely the Paira, the Naaf and the Pashur rivers of the giant freshwater prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii de Man).
PLs were collected from three rivers namely the Pashur, the Paira and the Naaf under Bagerhat, Barguna and Cox's Bazar district, respectively (Fig.
30 g in the Pashur, Paira and Naaf population, respectively.
A total of five alleles were detected as private alleles: three in the Naaf population and two in the Pashur population.
The mean number of alleles (Na), mean effective number of alleles (Ne) and the observed (Ho) and expected (He) heterozygosityy values of the Pashur population were higher than those of the Paira and the Naaf population (Table 2).
SP Investigations Mardan Gulzar Khan while giving briefing at Central Police Office Pashur said that five kidnappers were killed in police encounters and 23 out of the 24 people who were kidnapped for ransom were recovered safely and without payment of the ransom money.
