Ferry services on Paturia-Daulatdia and Aricha-Kazirhat routes resumed on Monday morning, after 11 hours of disruption caused by thick fog.
Shah Md. Khaled Nawaz, deputy general manager (Commercial) of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC), said ferry services remained suspended from 11 pm on Sunday due to poor visibility and those resumed around 10 am today.
Three ferries remained stranded in the middle of the Padma river and operation of 11 more ferries was cancelled on the routes, he said.
About 300 vehicles also got stuck on both sides of the river due to the suspension of the ferry services, said the official.
