Earlier, the Banglabazar-Shimulia route was halted from 5:00 am on Tuesday to avoid accidents.
Bhojan Saha, assistant manager of BIWTC's Banglabazar Ghat, said the ferry’s marking light became blurred due to dense fog in the river in the morning, as a result, all ferry services on the route have been suspended from 5:00 am to avoid accidents. Even some ferries were anchored in the middle of the Padma River at that time, he added.
