Long-distance buses plying Dhaka-Tangail highway defying govt order

Long-distance buses are plying Dhaka-Tangail highway, violating restriction imposed by the government to curb transmission of Covid-19.

While visiting the highway, our Tangail correspondent saw long-distance buses operating in Gharinda, Kandila, Rabna, Bikromhati, Rasulpur and Elenga areas.

Traffic police have fined a number of buses on the highway for violating the government instruction, Yasir Arafat, in-charge of Elenga Highway Police Outpost, told our correspondent.

The Dhaka-Tangail highway and Bangabandhu bridge, known as the gateway to northern districts, are witnessing heavy pressure of vehicles this morning as Eid holidaymakers are leaving Dhaka by buses, private cars, rental cars and microbuses.
