Transport owners decided to operate buses from Monday morning

Bus services have resumed in Dhaka, after a suspension for several days following student protests.

Buses were running in Dhaka streets on Monday morning, though in fewer numbers than usual. 

Bangladesh Sarak Paribahan Samity on Sunday night decided to start operating buses again from Monday morning.

Long route buses also left the city’s Saidabad, Mohakhali, and Gabtali bus terminals, said Kazi Wazed, officer-in-charge of Jatrabari police station.

Our correspondent Arifur Rahman Rabbi, who reported from Science Laboratory intersection, said presence of public buses was scant. 

He did not see student protesters on the streets.

Meanwhile, police filed many cases during the ongoing traffic week announced by Dhaka Metropolitan Police. 

Traffic Sergeant Shamsuddoha said they filed about 30 cases against traffic offenders since Monday morning.  

Our Dhaka University correspondent Fahim Reza Shovon said traffic was normal in Shahbagh intersection and students have not take to the streets yet. 

In Uttara,  the presence of buses was lower than normal, our correspondent Afrose Jahan Chaity reported.

Transport owners suspended bus services in the capital and on long-routes for an indefinite period amid the growing student movement for safer roads following the deaths of two college students in a road accident.

On July 29, Diya Khanam Mim and Abdul Karim Rajib, students of Shaheed Ramiz Uddin School and College, were killed by a speeding bus on Airport Road in Dhaka, which sparked protests by students across the country.
