Ferry service on the Daulatdia-Paturia route in Manikganj resumed after a four-hour suspension due to dense fog.

Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) Daulatdia Ghat Manager Md Nasir Khan confirmed the information, saying the ferry service resumed around 8:15 am on Thursday as the fog density decreased. 

The BIWTC authorities suspended the operation of the ferry service around 4:15 am due to dense fog and poor navigability to avoid any accident. 

Due to the suspension of the ferry services, both terminals witnessed a long tailback of vehicles. Several hundred of night coaches, private cars, and goods-laden trucks and other vehicles along with several thousand passengers had to wait for crossing the river.
