Cargo sinks into Padma

A stone-laden cargo sank into the Padma River after being hit by a ferry ‘Thobal’ at Louhajang upazila in the district on Saturday morning.

In-charge of Shimulia (Mawa) police camp Sub-Inspector (SI) Yunus Ali said the cargo was heading towards Kaorakandi ghat loaded with stone, while at the same time, the ferry ‘Thobal’ collided head-on with the cargo as there was dense fog at 9am, plunging the cargo into the river bed. The labourers who were on board the cargo managed to reach the bank swimming.
