Ferry services on Paturia-Daulatdia route resume after 6 days

Ferry route services on Paturia-Daulatdia in the Padma River resumed after six days of disruption caused by the heavy current on Thursday morning.

Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) suspended the service from 1:00 pm onwards on Saturday.

BIWTA was forced to suspend the operation of 13 among 16 ferries due to the heavy current in the river.

Meanwhile, the 13 old ferries failed to operate amid the heavy current. The Padma has been rough after water level rose and the current in the river increased along with strong wind and high waves.
