Authorities have suspended ferry service on Paturia-Daulatdia route to avoid accidents as the ferry’s marking lights became dim in the thick fog.
The ferry service was suspended from 5:45 am on Thursday (January 12).
Two ferries got stuck in the middle of the river with different types of vehicles.
The fog started falling in the river area early today. Later, the light of the ferry marking lamp became dim in the thick fog. For this reason, the ferry service on the Paturia-Daulatdia route was temporarily suspended at 5:45am to avoid accidents on the route.
Several ferries were anchored with vehicles at both ends of the river.
Ferry service on the river route will resume after the reduction of thick fog.
