Train services between Dhaka, northern region resume

Train communications of Dhaka with Rajshahi, Khulna and Rangpur divisions restored after six hours of disruption following a derailment of a wagon at Sayedabad Rail Station in Sirajganj today.

Earlier, four wheels of a bogy of a cargo train veered off the tracks near the Bangabandhu Bridge at about 8:15 am, halting train communication of Dhaka with 19 districts of northern and southern parts of the country, reports our Sirajganj correspondent,
