“The coast guard and police of Teknaf recovered three bodies— one man, one woman (25) and one girl (7). Within two days – June 16 and 17-, they recovered six bodies from the Bay of Bengal, but, more boat-people have been missing.”
The small wooden boat was sunk in the Bay of Bengal on June 16, with 28 voyagers not far from the coastline. Loading with passengers, it went to a big trawler, which was anchoring in the Bay of Bengal to get on the passengers. But it was sunk by the rough waves when the boat was returning to the coast again, as it was unable to get on the passengers to the big trawler. The big trawler had already left for Malaysia from the place before the arrival of the small boat, according to the local people.

A local fisherman Lal Meah from Teknaf said, most of the people (voyagers) are Rohingya Muslims including some Bengalis. At the movement, the weather is bad because of rainy season.
