Another Shimulia Ferry Ghat lost to Padma

Erosion by the Padma river has turned serious in Shimulia Ferry Ghat area of Munshiganj.

The river devoured Shimulia Ferry Ghat No-4 early Thursday.

Shafayet Ahmed, manager of Shimulia Ghat BIWTC, said the erosion started about 2:30am and in the meantime, the ferry ghat along with express road and few roads went under the water within 5.00am.

Movement of all the ferries and boats on the Shimulia-Kathalbari river route was closed at about 7:00am to avoid any accident.

The erosion is moving towards BIP Ferry Ghat2, said Shafayet.

Earlier, the third Ro-Ro ferry ghat drowned on July 28.

In the interval of nine days, two out of four ferry ghats of Shimulia went under the water.
