Bangladesh's "Hilsa' fish being sold in pieces in Kolkata

Dhaka, Sep 21 (UNI) Jest has been created among Facebook users in Bangladesh over a report that tasty fish hilsha is being sold by cutting into pieces in Kolkata, capital of Indian West Bengal state.
Those who expressed their fun over the matter have experienced of buying full size hilsha. However, they do not know how many people in their country have ability of buying a full size hilsha.
