The Jamuna

The Jamuna devours a part of Bhalkutia village in Tangail’s Bhuapur upazila. Locals said around 300 houses of three villages went into the river early last month, but the authorities were yet to take any measures to save the rest of the villages. The photo was taken on Sunday. Photo: Collected

workers repair

Workers repair the battered Hatikumrul-Bonpara highway in Sirajganj’s Tarash upazila yesterday. Locals said parts of the highway to Rajshahi were badly damaged due to waterlogging and flood last month. The repair work was already causing long tailbacks. Eid holidaymakers fear they would suffer delays on their journeys. Photo: Star
