A four-member investigation committee was formed to look into the reason behind the launch accident between two launches on Dhaleshwari river that happened in the early hours of Saturday.

The probe committee, led by Saiful Islam, joint director of naval security and traffic management department, Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA), was directed to submit its report within three working days.

One was killed and five others were injured when a Chandpur-bound launch collided head-on with a Dhaka-bound launch on the Dhaleswari River in Charkishorganj border area of Narayanganj and Munshiganj around 1:35 am.
