Ferry services on the Paturia-Daulatdia route have been suspended since early Tuesday morning due to dense fog.
The authorities of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) suspended the services to avoid the untoward accident as the fog increased in the river after 8:00 am on Tuesday.
After the suspension of the service, hundreds of passengers and goods-laden vehicles waited on both sides to cross the river. Passengers have suffered in the severe winter in the ghat area.
Manager of Daulatdia Ferryghat Md Nasir Khan said that the movement of ferries was halted at 8:00 am today as visibility fell drastically due to dense fog.
The ferry service will resume when fog will start to clear, the official added.
