Several buses were fined for taking excessive fares from passengers, not having fitness documents and illegally using horns that make huge noise.

With sheer excitement, nine-year-old Meem plays on a swing hanging from bamboo poles by the Buriganga river in the capital’s Kamrangirchar area. Children living in the area do not have a field or any other places for recreation, so they try to find joy in such little things. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Anisur Rahman
