Boats ferrying people at Fenchuganj Bazar in Sylhet district yesterday. The Kushiyara river swelled enough to inundate a large part of the upazila for over 20 days. Many flood victims are still in need of clean drinking water. Photo: Sheikh Nasir
Though Eid-ul-Azha is just a few days away, the crowd at Kamalapur Railway Station in the capital was relatively thin yesterday. Usually, the place is teeming with holidaymakers waiting to head to their destinations. Many people from southwestern districts opted to travel by road this Eid so that they could cross the recently-inaugurated Padma Bridge.
