Ferry services on the Daulatdia-Paturia route were suspended around 2:10 am after four ferries got stuck in the middle of the river due to poor visibility caused by dense fog, said Aricha office of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC).

Due to the suspension, hundreds of vehicles were stranded at both ends, causing distress to passengers and drivers in the chilly weather.
