A bus was stuck for hours as its wheels had sunken into a sand-filled trench in the capital’s Mohammadpur area. Dhaka Wasa, which had dug up the hole for development work, covered it only with some sand on Saturday, rendering this part of the road unfit for vehicular movement. The photo was taken yesterday morning.

A group of elderly men were waiting since dawn for the TCB truck to arrive in Khulna city’s Kalibari Kheyaghat area yesterday. With market prices of kitchen essentials on the rise, people from the low-income groups have no other alternative than to wait for hours every day to get them at subsidised prices from these trucks.
