Sand being illegally hauled off the bed of the Padma in an area at the border of Pabna and Kushtia districts. The land will be under water during monsoon a few months later and the patch of depression on the river bed will disrupt the water flow, worsening erosion of the banks and putting nearby villages at risk.
