Eid holiday ended four days ago. People are still returning to the capital Dhaka. At the Daulatdia ferry terminal in Rajbari, a rush of passengers heading towards the capital was seen.

Hundreds of people were seen crossing the Padma on a ferry without social distance and safety equipment on Saturday afternoon. 

Every ferry has been plying on the Daulatdia-Paturia route with the overflowing crowd since morning.

Abu Abdullah Rony, manager of Daulatdia Ghat, said that at present, 14 small and big ferries are crossing the Daulatdia-Paturia route by private vehicles and trucks. “Passengers are not heeding the administration’s instructions to follow the hygiene rules,” he added.
