Location of Shapuree Island in Bangladesh

Shapuree, Shahpori, Shah Parir,[1] Shapura,[2] or Shinmabyu Island (Bengali: শাহপরী দ্বীপ, romanized: Sahapari Dwip; Burmese: ရှင်မဖြူကျွန်း) is located in Bangladesh at the mouth of the Naf River, a maritime-boundary between Bangladesh and Myanmar. Historically, it was claimed by the British during the First Anglo-Burmese War.[3] The island forms an extension of the peninsula of Teknaf Upazila.[1]

The island has often been the landing place for boatloads of refugees crossing the Naf River from Myanmar, attempting to reach Bangladesh.[4]
