After the report of 13 Rohingyas found dead on Sunday night, on 10 October morning, the police have recovered nine more bodies from the Naf river in Teknaf upazila.
To verify this, the officer-in-charge (OC) of Teknaf Police Station Md Mainuddin says, the death toll from the boat capsize has risen from 13 to 23.
These new bodies were recovered from Saint Martin Island, Sabrang and Teknaf Sadar. Among the nine Rohingyas, five were women, says the OC.
He fears that this number will rise.
