Besides, another flight carrying 70 other workers arrived here on Sunday afternoon, Shariful Hasan, program head of Brac Migration Program said adding that around other 100 workers are scheduled to arrive in Dhaka on Sunday night, reports UNB.

The Brac Migration Program authorities have provided necessary assistance, including food, to the Bangladeshi workers.
