Fog disrupts ferry service for 5 hours

Ferry service on Paturia-Daulatdia route resumed yesterday after five and a half hours of suspension due to dense fog.

Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) sources said the movement of ferries on the route came to a complete halt at 5:00am due to poor visibility as the dense fog blanketed the riverbed.
