The Coast Guard and other Law Enforcement Agencies of Bangladesh deserve respect and reverence to bring such trafficking incidents into concern. To intercept and detect such incident is not an easy task. Small human trafficking vessels enter into the territorial water of Bangladesh at night. These vessels then take people and cross the territorial water boundary at night. So, it is very difficult to detect such vessels at sea. Photo Source: The Wall Street Journal
