An allegation has been raised about killing a dolphin against the fishermen of Shaplapur beach in Teknaf. 

Local environmental activist and Save the Nature of Bangladesh chairman Moazzem Hossain Riyadh said the fishermen beat and killed the dolphin while caught in a fishing net. 

Due to the recent lockdown, there are no tourists in Cox’s Bazar. So, dolphins are seen roaming near the beach. A week earlier such a video got viral on social media which brought a good message to the environment and tourism enthusiasts.
