The movement of all passenger vessels in Narayanganj, Gazipur, Munshiganj, Manikganj, Madaripur, Rajbari and Gopalganj have remain suspended since Tuesday morning.
Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) announced the decision to suspend the movement of launches, speedboats and trawlers on Monday, in line with the Cabinet Division’s circular on the imposition of lockdown in seven districts in a bid to curb the spread of Covid in these districts.
According to a notification by BIWTA, vessel movement from Dhaka to other parts of the country will also remain suspended during the period.
However, the restrictions won't apply on the movement of cargo vessels and emergency services. Legal action will be taken against violators, said the notification.
