A patrol team of Coast Guard today recovered another body from the Bay of Bengal over the Malaysia-bound boat accident near the Saint Martin's Island
Lt Nayemul Haque, station commander of Saint Martin's Coast Guard, said, "The team recovered a middle-aged woman's body at 12:30pm. We are assuming she might be one of the missing people from the trawler accident. Necessary measures have been taken to hand over the body to Teknaf Model police station."
Coast Guard members also recovered another body from the same spot on Friday evening.
Earlier, 16 bodies were recovered, while around 50 people remained missing after a boat with around 120-125 Rohingyas on board sunk in the Bay on February 11.
On February 12, a case was filed accusing 19 human traffickers. Of them, police detained eight traffickers so far.
