dhaka-chattogram highway

Rickshaw vans laden with iron rods lumber on the wrong side of the Dhaka-Chattogram highway near the capital’s Jatrabari on Sunday. A traffic policeman (not in the photo) was standing nearby, but he did nothing to stop the three-wheeler vans, which are banned on highways. Photo: Amran Hossain
