illegal charging

Illegal battery-run rickshaws, locally known as easy bikes, being charged at a garage in the capital's airport area recently. At least 40 such three-wheelers get charged there every day for Tk 80-100 each. The illegal charging consumes electricity, the dearth of which puts many areas of the country in the dark in the form of load shedding. The sign, inset, advertises fast charging.

55kg bagha ayer

A bagha ayer (dwarf goonch) caught in the Padma yesterday. The fish weighs around 55kg. A fisherman netted it off Shimulia ghat in Munshiganj and sold it to a wholesaler of Karwan Bazar for Tk 50,000. The small one, an ayer or long-whiskered catfish, is of the same species, but they do not grow as big as bagha ayer. Photo: Farhana Mirza
