No hotel vacancy in Benapole and Narail

Bangladeshis returning from India through Benapole checkpost are being sent to hotels in Khulna for 14-days quarantine.

Since Saturday, India-returnees have been sent to Khulna.

After all the 12 hotels and a madrasa in Benapole were filled with people from India by Thursday, they were sent to the hotels in Narail on Friday.

To cope with overwhelming crowd of returnees, this step has been taken.

Every day, Bangladeshis stuck in India are returning in groups through Benapole checkpost.

Most of the stranded passengers were staying in India for treatment.

About 70 Bangladeshis returned to the country by 3 pm on Sunday.

They were taken to Khulna under special arrangements.

So far 1199 people have returned from India after the lockdown.

As per the government instructions, the returnees are being kept in 14-day institutional quarantine.
