Poor visibility caused by thick fog has disrupted ferry services on Paturia-Daulatdia route on Friday morning.

Mohiuddin Russell, manager of Aricha sector of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC), said the ferry services remained suspended from 2 am due to poor visibility.

“The ferry services were suspended to avoid any possible accident on the river route,” he said.

Mohiuddin said several hundred vehicles on both sides of the river got stuck, causing sufferings to passengers.

Ferry services on this important river route are disrupted due to poor visibility caused by thick fog during winter every year.
