Our Correspondent, Manikganj:Dense fog halts ferry service on 2 river  routes at Paturia-Daulatdia and  Aricha-kajirhat .

Authorities have suspended ferry services on Paturia-Daulatdia and Aricha-Kazirhat routes as the dense fog blanketed the river beds of the Padma and the Jamuna rivers.

Ferry services on the two river routes were suspended to avoid accidents as the ferry’s marking lights became dim in the thick fog.

Meanwhile, the ferry services on Aricha-Kazirhat route also resumed after 11 and half hours of disruption due to the same cause.

Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) Aricha Ghat DGM Shah Mohammad Khaled Newaz confirmed the resumption of ferry services on the routes around 9:10am on Sunday (January 8).
