Trade between Bangladesh and India through Benapole land port has remained suspended since Sunday morning due to a problem with the internet server. However, there were no problems with the other activities, such as movement of travellers, loading, unloading and delivery of goods.
Meanwhile, thousands of commodity-loaded trucks got stranded at the entry points of Benapole and Petrapole ports.
Since morning till 12pm on Sunday, some 2,000 passengers entered India, as there was no disruption in such activity, said Mohsin Khan, police immigration officer in charge of Benapole International Checkpost.
India’s Petrapole port stopped working due to a server problem, which created all the sufferings, said Abdul Jalil, deputy director (traffic) of Benapole Land Port.
