Poor visibility caused by thick fog disrupted the ferry services on Paturia-Daulatdia and Aricha-Kazirhat route Monday morning, reports UNB.

Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) Deputy General Manager (Commercial) Shah Md Khaled Nawaz said the ferry services remained suspended from 11pm on Sunday due to poor visibility.

Three ferries remained stranded in the middle of the Padma river and operation of 11 more ferries was cancelled on the route, he said.

About 300 vehicles also got stuck on both sides of the river due to the suspension of the ferry services.

The service will resume once the fog dissipates, said the official.
