Ferry Services on the Paturia-Daulatdia route resumed after four hours of disruption caused by dense fog on Tuesday morning. 

Ferry services resumed around 8:30 am as fog disappeared.

Earlier, Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) suspended the services from 4:15 am due to poor visibility caused by dense fog to avoid any untoward incident. 

Seven ferries were stuck in the middle of Padma River and nine ferries with a good number of vehicles and passengers lay anchored at Paturia and Daulatdia terminals.

Mohiuddin Russel, manager of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) Aricha terminal office, confirmed the information and said that the ferry services resumed after visibility improved.
