Vessel movement from Dhaka to other parts of the country will also remain suspended
Authorities suspended the movement of all types of passenger vessels in Narayanganj, Gazipur, Munshiganj, Manikganj, Madaripur, Rajbari and Gopalganj from Tuesday morning to curb the spread of Covid-19 in these districts.
Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) announced its decision to suspend the movement of launches, speedboats and trawlers on Monday, following the Cabinet Division’s circular on the imposition of lockdown in seven 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 will not apply to the movement of cargo vessels and emergency services.
Legal action will be taken against violators, said the notification.
